Denmark’s district heating companies employ Thermax heat pumps
Since its first installation in 1999, Thermax has been assisting Scandinavian district heating companies with its absorption heat pumps – an integral component in their energy equipment configurations.
Silkeborg Heating Company deploys Thermax’s 7000 kW single effect steam drive heat pump and two 12,000 kW double effect steam driven heat pumps. Other district companies such as Hasle and Hammel also have implemented Thermax’s hot water driven heat pumps. District heating is an energy concept where waste heat from industrial sites and waste incinerators or underground geothermal heat is used for warming water used in public space heating networks. Thermax heat pumps absorb heat from these sources and preheat the water delivered to the buildings. This mode of heating is more efficient, cheap and has lower carbon emissions.
