The test aimed at giving the green light to transfer the tank to Paris, at ENGIE Lab Crigen, a research and operational expertise center, in a Living Lab where innovative energy storage solutions are explored.
The FAT consisted in (i) the revision of the installation according to the P&ID – by ENGIE and Stühff GmbH, (ii) the realisation of the leakage test – by ENGIE and Stühff GmbH, (iii) the evaluation of the correct functioning of critical alarms – by FBK, ENGIE and Stühff GmbH, and finally (iv) the check on the correct functioning of the state machine and of the control loops – by FBK, ENGIE and Stühff GmbH.
On this occasion, the project partners had the chance to work together, exchange views and strenghten relationship.
