Industrial-scale heat pumps from France, to be installed in the Esplanade underground cooling plant, will arrive in Finland by sea this week. The heat pump parts will be transported from the Vuosaari Harbour to Helen’s district cooling cavern.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment, the Energy Authority and Motiva have awarded Helen with recognition for its excellent energy-efficiency work. The event took place at the awards gala and seminar on energy efficiency agreements held at the Finlandia Hall on 15 June 2017.
Helen is planning a diverse residential block in Kalasatama in Helsinki with on objective of taking housing quality and energy efficiency to a whole new level of standards.
A record amount of renewable district heat was produced last year with the large heat pumps operating in the underground rock cavern in Sörnäinen, a total of 491,000 MWH. We also recovered over 16 per cent more excess heat than in the previous year.
Building construction professionals believe that responsible construction is evident in areas like choice of building materials, the carbon footprints of buildings, and the energy efficiency of construction. The objective of responsible construction is to build healthy and safe homes. The conclusions come from a study commissioned by Helen Ltd and carried out by IROResearch Oy.
Helen is seeking new partners for local renewable energy production projects. Selected project partners will receive a total of EUR 50,000 in financial aid.
Helen will make a significant investment in district cooling energy by building a second industrial-scale heating and cooling plant in Helsinki. This investment will reduce Helen’s carbon dioxide emissions as fossil fuels can be replaced by heat pumps in district heat production.
A record amount of district heat in the Helsinki region, 422,000 MWh, was produced in 2015 at the world's largest heating and cooling plant. A total of 13% more useful energy was recovered than in 2014.
Heat produced by the sun is recovered with district cooling.
Helen will be expanding the district cooling network and upgrading the district heating network in different parts of Helsinki during the summer.
