The design of the versatile residential SunZeb city block is progressing. The block will be built in Kalasatama, Helsinki. The housing quality and energy efficiency of the residences built in the area will be in line with future requirements.
The first wood pellets were ignited this week at Helen’s new pellet-fired heating plant in the Salmisaari district of Helsinki. The plant will soon generate renewable district heat to customers in Helsinki. The pellet-fired heating plant is a significant project to increase renewable energy in Helen’s energy production.
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 district heat water flow fee will rise by 7.8% as from 1 October 2017. The average impact of the change in the water flow fee on the total price of district heat is 1.9%.
A steel-structured art wall reflecting people’s relationship with energy has been erected on the grounds of the Munkkisaari heating plant in Helsinki.
One of the two oil tanks in the Jakomäki heating plant will be modified and the use of one will be suspended. The modification work will start in early April, and the plant will be calibrated to meet the new emission requirements in September. The heating plant will be back in full operation in December 2017.
Finland’s largest pellet boiler will arrive in the Salmisaari power plant area next week.
Helen will carry out modernisation work on the district heating network in Tukholmankatu.
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.
