HELSINKI HFC-134A BASED DISTRICT HEATING AND COOLING PLANT GETS SIGNIFICANT EXPANSION

09.05.2017

The Helsinki HFC-134a based District Heating and Cooling system has been expanded to become fully integrated by the addition of two new heat pumps delivering together 15 MW of cooling and 22 MW of heating.

After expansion the heating (90MW) and cooling (60MW) plant will deliver an overall energy saving of 80%.

The fully integrated District Heating and Cooling system will recover heat from renewable sources including seawater for both heating and cooling, sewage water and even the buildings themselves as effective solar collectors.

The facility excavated under the Katri Vala Park houses the world’s largest heat pump plant, producing district heat and cooling in a single process.
