Therm-Liner Plant in Pinneberg
Pinneberg Community Center (2009)
The conditions to receive heat from the sewer couldn´t have been better in Pinneberg. That is the reason why the azv Südholstein-sewage treatment plant Hetlingen decided in line with the renovation of an accumulative reach to install the heat exchange system to support the school, community center with attached sport facility as well as the fire service department with heat from the sewer.
The waste water that flows constantly in large quantities through the sewers under our cities has, up to now, been neglected as an energy source.
The energy that exists in this waste water can be used to heat or to cool buildings.
The Therm Liner System from Uhrig is installed into the existing Sewer network and the waste water simply flows over the elements. The energy is then extracts by means of a heat pump system and introduced into the buildings existing heating or cooling system for use.
