Preload Middle East's tank solutions address the need for high-quality water storage internationally along with emerging thermal energy storage (TES) technology that has resulted from efforts to focus on energy-efficient and environmentally responsible solutions. Several factors—economic growth, infrastructure expansion, and a high demand for centralized cooling—are increasing the need for high-quality water storage throughout the world. Recognizing this opportunity, Preload Middle East has become involved in several large-scale water storage projects in the Middle East and elsewhere. Preload Middle East's tank solutions also address the TES technology that has become a widely sought means for cutting energy costs for big commercial and industrial facilities.
Many of the storage challenges our customers present to us today are challenges we have met throughout our many years in business. Economic growth, infrastructure expansion, and a high demand for centralized cooling are increasing the need for high-quality water storage internationally. Recognizing this opportunity, Preload Middle East, part of the Preload International family of firms, has become involved in several large-scale water storage projects in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait.
Preload Middle East's tank solutions also address the emerging thermal energy storage (TES) technology that has resulted from efforts to focus on energy-efficient and environmentally responsible solutions. TES has become a widely sought means for cutting energy costs for big commercial and industrial facilities.
Depending on the storage need, a Preload tank can be built to various height-to-diameter ratios, with flat or dome roofs, or open top. As with all our digester tanks, Preload Cryogenics can incorporate the necessary conical floors and mixing equipment utilized for the treatment of biofuels.
From potable water to wastewater and thermal energy storage (TES) to industrial applications including the storage of liquids at cryogenic temperatures, you can rely on Preload Cryogenics' engineering and construction expertise to develop the perfect solution for your storage challenge.
Large-scale Water Storage Solutions
Preload Middle East's large-scale water storage tanks provide unique solutions, particularly in hotter parts of the world. Various industries and governments, municipalities and the military find the above-ground or buried tanks a perfect solution for clean water storage.
Thermal Energy Storage (TES)
Thermal energy storage is an energy-saving concept that has been implemented for decades, yet it has never before seen the far-reaching potential for application that it does now. The basic mechanism behind TES is simple: chillers use electricity to cool water during evening hours instead of during the day when energy demand is at its highest. The chilled water is stored in large tanks overnight and pumped to a heat exchanger, providing cooling power for air conditioning systems.
New TES projects are encouraged by rate offsets offered by power providers as a way to regulate plant load requirements. Load regulation allows new power projects to be scaled back, reducing the cost to construct and maintain the infrastructure. Similarly, TES construction or expansion at existing plants enhances efficiency by allowing for useful generation during times when the plant would otherwise be dormant.
Large-scale developers are increasingly aware of the significant returns from rate off-setting. In this way, most district cooling projects quickly achieve a positive cash flow in addition to meeting cooling demands.
