SEAS- NVE will reduce the CO2 emission with 50%

SEAS- NVE has just started to operate a new geothermal system near the conference centre Pionergården at Kalundborg with the result that we will halve the CO2 emission.

SEAS- NVE has just started to use a new geothermal system near the conference center Pionergården at Kalundborg. The system replaces old, needed to be replaced, oil-fired boilers. The replacement is good news for the environment because our annual CO2 emissions will be reduced from 58 tons to 27 tons. It is also good news for our financial position; The new geothermal system also means an annual saving of 120.000 Danish Crowns (approx. 18.000 Euros) compared to oil .

The green transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy is SEAS- NVE’s main ambition. Our transition is gradual and this is an important step in the right direction we have taken with the use of the new geothermal system.

According to a government decision from 2011, the Danish electricity and heat supply by 2035 will be covered by renewable energy. Therefore SEAS- NVE is working at daily basis for phasing-in more green-energy solutions, both at the customers and at our premises.
"The geothermal system ensures a clean environmental energy source. In addition, it also saves SEAS- NVE expenses. As cooperation, we have a responsibility to our shareholders to invest wisely. Therefore, it is with a clear conscience that SEAS- NVE takes the old boilers out of production. Geothermal plant is therefore an important step in the transition towards greener technologies, " says Jesper Hjulmand , CEO at SEAS- NVE .

The preparation started early September, and the plant has just put into operation. With its output of 120 kW it covers the pioneer farm's annual heat consumption of 220.000 kWh, equivalent to 22,000 gallons of oil. While the transition to geothermal facility was to replace a 4.000 litre hot water tank for a new custom designed tank in similar size.

Two new heat pumps supply their hot water in the top and middle of the tank. At the top of the tank where the hottest water is located, hot domestic water will be supplied via four heat exchangers. From the middle of the tank, where the water temperature is controlled in relation to the outside temperature, the radiator systems be be supplied to heat the building.
The tank construction ensures all the time the best and most energy efficient operating conditions for the geothermal heating system. The design of the tank makes it possible to store the energy of a solar heating system as well.
