As part of the launch of its activities and the execution of its first contract, the STORABELLE startup is looking for its future Expert in Control and Automation Systems for power generation plants (SCADA: Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition).

Storabelle studies and implements the transformation of thermal power plants scheduled for shutdown into massive electricity storage objects. Energy withdrawn from the grid is stored in thermal form in molten salt tanks (Carnot batteries), then returned to the grid by reusing the existing power plant’s turbo generator to produce electricity. Experience in the field of water-steam cycle power plants and molten salt energy storage technologies are considered assets for this position.
