Forty percent of Europe’s commercial real estate buildings have a cooling demand – this is a great potential for energy- and environmental savings.
FVB was involved when district cooling was introduced in Sweden, 1992, and has since then been involved in a large number of district cooling projects. In Sweden FVB was principal consultant for the expansion of one of the largest systems in Stockholm, and other major projects in North America and the Middle East. The experience and knowledge we have gained over the years have made us the market leader in the field.
A high standard of comfort in homes, offices and public places requires highly reliable distribution techniques. FVB can by its technical skills and utilization of local conditions, create an optimal solution for the client. District cooling is convenient, flexible and reliable and, at FVB, we know how to achieve it.
Utilizing sea-, ground- or wastewater is a cost effective way to produce district cooling, which can lead to energy savings of up to a factor of 10 times. If a district heating system is present, the usage of heat pumps or absorption machines can be an option. Incentives are, of course, a better utilization of resources and a better environment, indoors as well as outdoors.
FVB sees a bright future for the district cooling market. Global warming will, according to scientists, raise the average temperature on earth. This, combined with continued high use of electronic equipment, will result in an increased need for environmentally friendly cooling.
