Lysaker, Norway 24 August 2022 - Kyoto Group AS and Glomma Papp AS have signed a
Letter of Intent (LoI). The two companies will enter negotiations of a supply
agreement for Kyoto's Thermal Energy Storage (TES) solution, the HeatcubeT.
Glomma Papp, a Norwegian corrugated cardboard manufacturer, and Kyoto will
jointly complete a detailed technical and commercial evaluation of the
feasibility of Kyoto's HeatcubeT with the goal of entering into a supply
agreement with predicted commissioning during the summer of 2023.
The HeatcubeT, a thermal energy storage system, provides energy storage and heat
generation in one product. It supplies industrial customers with the technology
needed to lower both their costs for producing process heat and their CO2
"This is further proof of our commitments to sustainability and to reducing CO2
emissions from our processes and actively being a part of the green transition
for the corrugated industry. Kyoto's HeatcubeT offers an interesting potential
for us and we are excited to explore this opportunity in all details." says John
Stevenson, Technical Manager at Glomma Papp AS.
The Kyoto HeatcubeT can be configured with storage capacities from 8 MWh to over
96 MWh, with a discharge effect for each HeatcubeT of up to 5 MW. It is an
innovative, low-cost, and modular storage solution for thermal energy that can
use multiple renewable energy sources to heat molten salt to over 450 degrees
Celsius. The high-temperature salt is then used to produce steam for industrial
"We are grateful for the productive collaboration with Glomma Papp in exploring
all the benefits our HeatcubeT brings them. In offering industrial heat through
a HeatcubeT thermal battery, our ambition is to help the industrial sector
reduce emissions and improve the security of supply at a lower cost," says Kyoto
Group CCO Tim de Haas.
