Sunamp has signed an agreement with Chinese solar giant Trina Solar to develop an integrated solution combining its thermal storage batteries with heat pumps to be manufactured at a new factory in Changzhou. The two companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the official opening of Trina’s new heat pump facility on October 20. The agreement will see UniQ heat batteries from Sunamp, based in Edinburgh, used in combination with Trina’s heat pumps to deliver what both have described as ‘a game-changing cleantech solution’. According to Sunamp, the combined system will offer between 23 – 35kWh of storage, with the company working in collaboration with Trina Solar to ensure its manufacturing capabilities keep pace with that of the Chinese firm. Sunamp’s chief executive Andrew Bissell said: “We are extremely honoured that such a prestigious global company as Trina Solar has chosen Sunamp as a partner as they embark on their expansion into the heat pump market.
