District Heating

To provide district heating, Statkraft has plants, which through a combustion process, converts gases such as biofuel, heat pumps, landfill gas, natural gas, propane/butane gas, electricity and fuel oil and organic waste into hot water. This water is then turned into steam and is distributed through insulated pipes to districts or entire cities to provide heat. Finally, when the water cools off, it is returned to the central plant through a return pipeline where it is reheated.
