CALMAC has announced that its IceBank tanks are storing energy from an on-campus wind turbine at the Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT) in Ireland.

CALMAC says its tanks store energy from a Vestas V52-850kW wind turbine in the form of ice, which is then used the next day to cool students and faculty in the institute's PJ Carroll building.

"Capturing excess wind energy by using CALMAC's IceBank tanks has really helped to maximize the use of renewable energy on campus," says Christian Maas, building services technical officer at DkIT.
