The benefits and challenges

Technical data

approx. 20–24 MW district heating (depending on the temperature of the heat source)
approx. 3
Heating circuit
District heating water that comes back from the customers to the combined heat and power plant (the so-called return) is heated in two stages to the required temperature level of the flow (the water that is transported to the customers). The heat pump is used for the first heating stage (90°C).
Cooling water withdrawal
approx. 4,300 m³/h (equivalent to approx. 1,200 l/s)
approx. €17 million
