District Heating and Cooling Networks

District Heating and Cooling Networks

Artelia employs strong expertise in district heating and cooling through numerous projects in France and the Nordic countries. Artelia supports its clients in all aspects of their projects: feasibility studies, design studies, project supervision, commissioning, audits and turnkey projects.

Within the projects, Artelia is involved as an expert in the fields of energy, environment and urban planning and provides assistance for the safety and the issuing of regulatory files. Artelia’s clients benefit from the company’s expertise in modelling and simulation tools, such as Termis, Thermoflow or EnergyPro, digital model tools, such as Revit or Plant 3D and design tools, such as Caesar II for pipes flexibility. In addition, Artelia has the ability to carry out 3D plans using FARO laser scanners.

Artelia masters all the expertise needed to strengthen the key role of district heating and cooling in the energy transition – heating and cooling from all renewable and recovery energy sources, energy efficiency of district networks and buildings, coupling of heat and cold supply, heat and cold storage – in order to reduce GHG emissions and use local energy resources.

France | Lille

Artelia assisted the Métropole Européenne de Lille in the renewal of the concession contract for its district heating network. The network, created in 1982, has undergone numerous phases of extension and renovation.

France | Chartres

The district heating network of Chartres, which supplied 37 heat exchangers over a length of 6 km, produces energy from a 22 MW gas-fired boiler-room. In addition, an 8.5 MW cogeneration plant provides heat while producing electricity. 

Denmark | Copenhague

HOFOR is a Danish company that operates a district heating network and provides heat to 500,000 households in Copenhagen. In order to achieve the carbon neutrality goal of the city by 2050, the Amager power station needs to be converted.

Denmark | Copenhagen

The new Amager Bakke waste-to-energy plant is an exceptional building by virtue of both its striking steel structure and an original approach to embedding the facility within the urban community.
