1995: Stockholm Energy started supplying properties in
central Stockholm with cooling from its new district cooling system.
Most of the cooling is produced by using cold water from the Baltic
Sea. The temperature of the cooling water leaving the plant is 6°C or
lower and the return temperature from the distribution grid is 16°C at
high load and a few degrees lower at low load. The district cooling
system is designed for a maximum load of 60 MW. It is the largest
cooling system in Europe.
Please note that Makai was not involved in the design process of this system. It is included as a good example of SWAC technology.
