City of Stockholm

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 6C or lower and the return temperature from the distribution grid is 16C 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.
