As Oy Helsingin Sompasaaren Pooki
Sompasaari, located in the eastern part of Helsinki, is a significant new concentration of residential and office buildings and services. Several dozen apartment buildings have been built in the area, right next to the seafront and close to the center of Helsinki. As Oy Helsinki’s Sompasaari Pooki is one of the finest residential buildings in the area, which also takes into account energy efficiency in addition to architecture.
A wastewater heat recovery system has been installed in the property alongside the district heating system. The Ecowec hybrid exchanger is connected to a heat pump that efficiently transfers the heat from the wastewater leaving the property to the new hot water. The system is thus a hybrid system that utilizes district heating and wastewater, which reduces the property’s CO2 emissions and property heating costs.
