District Cooling Stations in Helsinki – Pre-feasibility studies
CHC-station (Combined Heating and Cooling Station) alternatives
The considered alternatives included the CHC-station, which is planned to serve both the district cooling and the district heating networks of Helsingin Energia, and the separate peak load station.
The key elements considered in the pre-feasibility studies were the following:
- Heat pump concept and configuration including connections to district cooling and heating networks
- Maximum capacity and optimum unit size taking into account the space available at the plant
- Preliminary layout for heat pump units
- Budgetary offers for heat pump units
- Investment and O&M costs estimations for plant life cycle
- Least cost analysis
The project design and calculations were carried out by Greenfield Consulting in close cooperation with Helsingin Energia.
