About Pink

pink logo

Pink has years of experience in the field of designing and production of storage tanks, stainless steel hot water tanks, and energy storage tanks. Additionally, Pink is a specialist in the field of solar thermal systems, solar/thermally driven cooling, and domestic hot water preparation systems. Another important business area includes district heating systems. Pink developed a software tool to simulate district heating networks. This tool helps to design and optimise district heating systems.

Role in the Project

As a specialist for domestic hot water preparation systems, Pink are able to provide a range of de-centralised DHW-systems with specific advantages in terms of energy efficiency and installation time.

Pink will provide detailed information for several de-centralised DHW-systems to be embedded in the project simulation architecture as well as components for Demo-installations.
