Cooling production

Utilitas produces cooling energy by using district cooling plants with water coolers, heat pumps, and free cooling, making it much more energy efficient than a local system. The efficiency of the district cooling system is increased by using various energy production options for the required cooling energy, which cannot be achieved via local cooling solutions due to lack of space, the size of the investment, or the insufficiency of the electrical power.

In the near future, Utilitas will produce most of its cooling energy from a seawater plant that uses the Gulf of Finland for free cooling, which will help to further increase the efficiency of the cooling system and reduce the use of primary energy.
