The Pre-Event venue

Visit Katri Vala heating and cooling plant the day before the conference

The largest heat pump plant in the world, the Katri Vala heating and cooling plant will be the place to be for the HS2E Europe summit. Everyone who arrives in Helsinki on 18th September 2019 has the opportunity to be at our pre-event and to be part of an very interesting company visit.

Participants have the unique opportunity to visit this Helen Oy heating and cooling plant which is built under Helsinki city. We are very pleased to have the chance to present this Helen heating and cooling plant to our summit participants.

During the visit you get to know the Katri Vala plant and how Helen is using Quentic App in their safety management.

Katri Vala is the largest heat pump plant in the world to produce heat and cooling. Its carbon dioxide emissions are 80% smaller than for example in separate heat production with heavy fuel oil. Helen Ltd’s energy production is awarded as the most efficient in the world.

  • What: heat and cooling
  • What from: purified waste water, return water from district cooling and electricity
  • Where: under the Katri Vala Park in Sörnäinen
  • When: 2006
  • How much: heat 105 MW, cooling 70 MW

How heat pumps work

The heat pump operates on the same principle as, for example, a refrigerator.

  • Condenser (warm side) – The refrigerant is in liquid state in the condenser.
  • Evaporator (cold side) – In the evaporator the pressure is lower, which vaporises the refrigerant. The change in the state requires energy, which the refrigerant obtains by absorbing heat from its environment. That way, the temperature will fall.
  • Compressor – The pressure of the refrigerant is raised with a compressor, and this will make it return to liquid state in the condenser. At the same time, it will transfer energy as heat into its environment.
