HögforsGST implemented the first district heating substations utilizing the new Mid-Cooling connection for two terraced house properties in Oulu, Finland. The mid-cooling connection, a revolutionizing innovation for the district heating industry, has improved the energy efficiency and lowered the return temperatures of district heating already during the first heating season.

During the following decade, a smart energy system will be built in Oulu’s Karjasilta area. The smart fourth-generation district energy system will both heat and cool the area's properties. The residental area will be built by Hartela Oy and Oulun Energia is responsible for implementing the district energy system. Karjasilta’s hybrid heating and cooling system is manufactured and supplied by HögforsGST.
