Four GEA ammonia heat pumps, each with a heating capacity of 10 MW (in total 40 MW), have been installed at an E.ON-operated district heating plant. Accelerate Europereports.
E.ON, one of the world's largest investor-owned electric utility service providers, last year (December 2017) completed a 40 MW ammonia heat pump project for district heating in the harbour area of the city of Malmö, Sweden.
Four GEA ammonia heat pumps, each with a heating capacity of 10 MW, use the heat from Malmö’s sewage treatment and waste incineration plants to deliver heating to approximately 100,000 homes in the Swedish city.
“We started in 2015 and then we got our investment decision in May 2016. We signed the contract in July with Francks Kylindustri [a Swedish contractor specialised in cooling and heating with ammonia],” Mats Egard, E.ON Sweden’s heating segment project manager, told Accelerate Europe.
