Two projects on turbo heat pumps have recently been approved at SCCER EIP partner HSLU in cooperation with partners from industry:
- High Efficiency Turbo Compressor with Gas Bearings for Refrigerant Plants with 80-130 kW Cooling Capacity (CTI project)
- Efficient Combined Heat Pump and Refrigerating Device with Turbo Compressor for Electric Vehicles (SFOE project)
The total project volume is 2.65m CHF. Of particular note is the first project as it is strongly linked to the activities of the SCCER EIP. In addition, the range of cooling/heating capacities is of great interest for application in industrial processes.
