Thermax pioneers solar based cooling solutions by integrating Vapor Absorption Machines with Thermax Solar Concentrators. The concentrators generate hot water by harnessing solar thermal energy. The hot water is supplied to a Vapor Absorption Machine (VAM). The VAM supplies chilled water which is circulated through cooling coils in the Air Handling Units (AHUs), over which air flows. The air thus cooled can be used for air-conditioning applications through solar cooling system hybridized with conventional cooling system. Solar concentrators hybridized with biomass gasifier can also be used to power cold storage facilities. This type of cold storage design boosts overall efficiency of the agricultural produce value chain by reducing wastage & improving storage conditions for agricultural yield in a rural setup. In addition to the solar technology, there are various other sub-systems required in a solar cooling project including power block, water treatment, balance of plant, plant EPC, O&M, etc. Thermax has substantial experience and domain knowledge in these areas as well, thus enabling Thermax to serve customers in the best possible way.
