A district heat network in the Bera Bera district of Donostia, (also known as San Sebastian) is to be upgraded.
The neighborhood will improve its hot water and heating network and connect it with homes in neigbouring Pagola.
600 homes will be connected via the upgrade-with additional connection to 238 housing units of Etxegintza VPO in the Pagola neighborhood.
"The network now has a lot of antiquity and suffers both caloric and water losses that account for about 40% of the total," explains Juantxo Sabadie, president of Ur Beroa, the cooperative formed by the neighborhood community responsible for managing the service since 1985.
