EnPot license agreement signed
TRIMET Aluminium SE and Energia Potior Limited have signed a license agreement for the EnPot Shell Heat Exchanger technology, it was announced today by Dr. Martin Iffert, CEO of TRIMET, and Dr. Mark Dorreen, CEO of Energia Potior Ltd.
Dr. Dorreen says the license agreement is inclusive of all four TRIMET Aluminium SE smelters, and reflects TRIMET’s position as the market leader when it comes to the adoption of the EnPot modulation-enabling technology.
"TRIMET was the first company in the world to expand the use of the EnPot technology beyond trial pots, and their management team have contributed significantly to the development of the technology," Dr. Dorreen says.
Dr. Martin Iffert says the adoption of EnPot technology is an important part of TRIMET’s Virtual Battery Concept which demonstrates the capability of aluminium smelters to cope with changing market conditions, "particularly as Germany seeks to increase the percentage of electricity generated from renewable sources."
