In April, 2019 CHESTER partners started assembling the High Temperature Heat Pump at the TECNALIA Energy Efficiency lab.
Viking Heat Engines have supplied us with a compressor for the heat pump. Sometimes, looks are enough! Doesn’t the compressor look great (see figure 4).
Latest update: compressor successfully tested with refrigerant
July, 2019 Viking Heat Engines’ compressor was successfully tested with the refrigerant R1233zd(E).
Tecnalia has successfully tested the compressor provided refrigerant at their lab. The compressor behaved as it was expected, and Chester’s required operating conditions for the HTHP were achieved.
