Cooling and Heat Re-Use

Cooling by sea water
  • Short pumping distance from sea to the plant
  • Sea water stays reasonably cool also in summer.

Excellent conditions for air cooling
  • Cold climate suggests air cooling
  • Cooling by cooling towers or direct air cooling
  • Energy re-use in heating and local DH network

Heat Re-use: by heat pumps to district heating
  • Theoretical potential for heat energy re-use up to 1,3 x DC power consumption
  • Heat re-use COP from 1,5 up to 4
