Customized solution and high efficiency

Aalborg CSP A/S received the order for turnkey delivery of a customized 1.2 MW integrated electrical heat pump system to Saltum Fjernvarme in Denmark. The system will help increase the reduction of the facility’s natural gas dependency as well as stabilize the energy prices towards the customers.

The 1.2MW electrical air-to-water integrated heat pump system, which will be located in Saltum in Northern Jutland, will use outdoor air as the source for heat production in order to supply sustainable heating to the district heating plant's 370 customers.

The system is customized to fit the district heating plant’s specific energy needs with a high efficiency (COP) thus lowering the cost of energy. With a capacity of 1.2 MW at 0 °C, the plant is capable of producing 8,000 MWh heat annually, thereby covering approx. 80% of the customers’ heat consumption.

When asked, why Aalborg CSP was selected for this project, chairman of Saltum Fjernvarme Ole Hejlesen responds: “During the entire bidding and negotiation process, Aalborg CSP has been very attentive of our needs and easy to work with. Furthermore, the solution from Aalborg CSP gives us the best long-term financial returns, which benefits our district heating consumers.”

Besides offering a cost competitive solution for heat production, the solar plant also avoids the emission of at least 1.150 tons of CO2 annually.
