Nohewa developed a tailored solution for Kuopio Energy which allows combined district cooling and heating. Our solution includes industrial heat pumps ensuring that the required cooling energy is consistently available for the district cooling customers throughout the year, even in the hottest summer days.

The excess heat is recovered from the district cooling system and utilized for heating. Nohewa’s stacked heat pump solution enables high cooling and heating output with a very compact footprint.

The Dolomites create an impressive entrance to the MEHITS testing laboratory

MEHITS’ distinguished research and development work with industrial heat pumps is equally impressive. The progress in the resent years has been remarkable, and more is to come as even higher COP values and condenser outlet temperatures will be reached with new products in the near future. The standard MEHITS products reach cooling capacities up to 4 MW.

In early September 2019, Nohewa and MEHITS invited Kuopio Energy for a customer witness test of the equipment. The tests were carried out in the state-of-the-art MEHITS test laboratory in Belluno, Italy. The tests were successful, as the units achieved the extremely strict quality and performance requirements set by the customer.

The circumstances for the test couldn’t have been better as the landscape and views in the Dolomites are simply breathtaking! Among testing the delegation visited the famous winter sport resort in Cortina d'Ampezzo for a tasty lunch with an amazing view. The Belluno area is also known for its hearty, delicious cuisine which the test crew enjoyed wholeheartedly.
