Aalborg CSP received an order from the Danish district heating plant Solrød Fjernvarme for turnkey delivery of a 1.2 MW CO2 heat pump system that will support the district heating plant’s transition from natural gas to renewable energy.
Efficient and sustainable refrigerant
Aalborg CSP was selected as turnkey supplier of the 1.2 MW CO2 heat pump system. The heat pump absorbs heat from the air. It then transfers the thermal energy using CO2 to facilitate the process. Using CO2 as refrigerant is both efficient and sustainable as CO2 is extracted from the air and has no environmental impact if emitted. Aalborg CSP is likewise responsible for integrating the heat pump system with the existing district heating solution.
Heat pump and solar integration improves efficiency of heat production
The heat pump system in Solrød is integrated with the local district heating plants existing 2,569m2 solar-thermal plant and 1,250 m3 accumulation in an intelligent way. The heat pump helps optimize the return temperature in the solar heating plant thus boosting the overall efficiency of the plant. Likewise, energy from the existing hot water accumulation tank helps boost the efficiency of the heat pump.
Antallet af fjernvarmere forbrugere i Havdrup/Solrød forventes indenfor kort tid at blive mere end fordoblet. Varmepumpen skal således sikre, at der er grøn varme til de mange nye forbrugere, der kobler sig på fjernvarmenettet.
