Title (EN) SUBSEA ENERGY STORAGE
(FR) STOCKAGE D'ÉNERGIE SOUS-MARINE
Abstract:
(EN) A subsea energy storage installation comprises a pumped-storage system having pumping and hydropower generation components for, selectively, converting electricity into potential energy by expelling water from within a tank into the surrounding sea and for generating electricity from an incoming flow of water re-entering the tank under hydrostatic pressure. The tank comprises at least one elongate rigid pipeline that may be lowered to the seabed as part of a towable unit or laid on the seabed as a pipe string launched from a surface vessel.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une installation de stockage d'énergie sous-marine comprenant un système de stockage par pompage ayant des composants de pompage et de génération d'énergie hydraulique pour, de façon sélective, convertir l'électricité en énergie potentielle en expulsant l'eau de l'intérieur d'un réservoir dans la mer environnante et pour générer de l'électricité à partir d'un flux entrant d'eau entrant à nouveau dans le réservoir sous pression hydrostatique. Le réservoir comprend au moins une conduite rigide allongée qui peut être abaissée jusqu'au fond marin en tant que partie d'une unité remorquable ou posée sur le fond marin sous la forme d'un tronçon de conduites déposé à partir d'un navire à la surface.
