The establishment of one of Denmark's largest ATES plants to date ensures that the airport sector can meet the 2020 energy requirements for CO reduction.
When the other refrigeration systems are optimized, the system will cover the majority of the energy consumption for cooling the airport buildings.
Copenhagen Airports A/S expects to achieve a reduction in energy consumption by 4.5 GWh per year and a profit of 50 million by 2020.
Copenhagen Airports A/S expects that with the installation they will achieve a reduction in energy consumption by 4.5 GWh per year and thereby achieve a profit of energy costs of as much as 50 million by 2020.
The ATES plant is cooling about 10 times as efficiently as the existing plants which the ATES system will replace, with R22 plants to be phased out by the end of 2014.
Installed in 2015, the plant is capable of delivering a cooling performance of up to 5 MW. The life of the plant is estimated at a minimum of 25 years and it has a payback period of about 6 years.
