In 2012 two new multi-storey houses were connected to the city’s existing geothermal heating network. In order to carry out the realization of this new junction a new pipeline and measurement system was developed. The newly installed capacity of this latest extension of the district heating system is 300 kW and 275 kW for heating and DHW purposes respectively.
A newly built elderly home was also connected to the geothermal system of which DHW distribution capacity had to be improved and extended for this reason. Two new circulation pumps were installed for DHW purposes and also a new heat exchanger. In addition a new exchanger station had to be developed along with the pipelines supporting the elderly home and covering their demand. The installed capacity of this junction for heating and DHW production is 264 kW.
