We installed an industrial heat pump manufactured by the Berg Chilling System, which uses surplus thermal energy from the manufacturing process as directed heat.
In comparison with before, when light heating oil was used to produce heat, the cost of thermal energy has fallen by 3.5 to 4 times for the owners of the project.
In Uikala we built a landfill gas based co-generation plant based on the ‘turn-key' principle, where we constructed utility lines, a compressor station, electrical connection substation and installed co-generation units, built by German manufacturer 2G Energietechnik GmbH, in containers.
The installed economiser preheats water that is returned from the district heating utility line prior to it re-entering the boiler, raising the coefficient of performance of the boiler by approximately 4%.
We built a new 2 MW wood chip boiler plant in the existing building. We also installed an energy accumulation solution, which stores energy resulting from the over pressure of steam in the form of warm water, which is used for heating and warm water.
