This is the first project where, despite no geothermal resources being available and “uneasy” winter weather conditions, the energy generation (hot and cold) is provided by MULTI-USE refrigeration units convertible into heat pumps, cooled down by AIR and with no emergency boilers.
The multi-use refrigeration units run up to -15° C outside temperature. Once considered the particular configuration of the thermofrigorific power station and all plants fed by it, the COP (C.O.P.=Coefficient of Performance) – defined as the ratio between the outgoing thermal energy (thermal cooling energy + thermal heating energy =outgoing energy) and the energy going into the system (electric energy=ingoing energy) – is always at the highest obtainable levels, considering the thermo-hygrometric conditions and the conditions of use of the “Building/Plant System”.
