DTEK ESCO Is to Install a Heat Pump in a Sanatorium for Miners
DTEK ESCO will install a heat pump in “Samara” sanatorium in 2017, reducing the cost of heating and hot water supply by up to 60%, amounting to about 3M UAH or hundreds of tonnes of coal per year.
The project is planned to be fulfilled based on an energy service contract.
DTEK ESCO and VDE, a partner of international company Romstal, signed a contract on December 28 to drill a test well to determine the soil heat transfer. The survey will begin in January. A 500 kW heat pump is to be installed in October 2017.
“Samara” sanatorium is located in Pavlohrad District of Dnipropetrovsk Region. Thousands of DTEK miners get treatment and preventive health care there annually. Now, the sanatorium is heated by a coal-fired boiler house. A heat pump could save sanatorium’s money much needed for repairs and rehabilitation equipment and medicines. Quitting coal burning for room heating in favour of “green technologies” will reduce atmospheric emissions and become DTEK’s contribution to improving the region’s environment.
