högforsgst district heating


Improving efficiency in district heating isn't done only by investing in power plants but also by lowering the temperature level of the network. District heating companies also aim to lower the temperature of the return water. However, the latter largely depends on the energy companies' collaboration with their customers.
HögforsGST has appointed Petteri Tarkio as their Sales Director. Tarkio will be responsible for managing and developing HögforsGST's sales in the Finnish market.

Unis 100-1RF wall mounted substation is the latest addition to the Unis product family. Unis 100-1RF substation contains a single circuit to produce the hot water required by the heating network. The Unis 100-1RF substation is ideally suited as an additional circuit alongside an existing substation, as well as for independent heating, for example, in properties where there is no need for domestic hot water.

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.
