Ringkøbing Fjernvarme

Ringkøbing Fjernvarme (district heating company in the Danish city of Ringkøbing) is the first district heating power plant that has entered into a contract with Solid energy. It’s with this agreement that Solid energy, through the newly established subsidiary “Ringkøbing Varmepumpe ApS”, will annually produce 30,000 MWh of heating for Ringkøbing Fjernvarme.

The first few years, the solution will use natural gas for fuel. Nevertheless, the discharge of CO₂ is reduced by nearly 5000 tonnes annually, as the heat is extracted from outdoor air. Later on, the intention is to connect the heat pump solution up with one or more wind turbines, with which 100% CO₂ neutrality will be achieved.

Skjern

Solid energy’s smallest solution of approx. 340 kW is installed in Skjern. It is an air/water heat pump solution, which can use both natural gas and electricity. The solution produces space heating for an approx. 9000 m² industrial facility. 

Tønder Fjernvarmeselskab

Tønder Fjernvarmeselskab (district heating company in the Danish city of Tønder) entered into a contract with Solid energy in January 2017. There is an agreement to hand over a heat pump solution in June 2017.

The solution is an air/water heat pump which can run on both natural gas and electricity. The heat pump solution must produce heating for Tønder Fjernvarmeselskab, but also process cooling for SAPA Extrusion, which produces aluminium parts for, among others, the automobile industry.
