Feasibility study on using residual heat from the Port of Rotterdam
Rotterdam Engineering and Witteveen+Bos are conducting a feasibility study into the possibilities of supplying residual heat from twenty companies in the Rotterdam port area, to a new heat network in South Holland.
The client is a joint venture between the Port of Rotterdam Authority and Gasunie. The cooperating companies intend to create a heat network that is accessible to several heat suppliers. Industry in the port of Rotterdam produces significant amounts of unused residual heat. Supplying this residual heat to a heat network would let it be used to make the built environment and nearby glasshouse horticulture more sustainable, among other things. Witteveen+Bos is focusing on the heat transfer system, and Rotterdam Engineering on the required piping infrastructure.
