How Volvo Car Gent is driving sustainability
SWEP's compact and high capacity brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs) have allowed Volvo Car Gent to substantially reduce its use of fossil fuels for heating purposes. CO2 emissions have been decreased by 15,000 tons per year, a net decrease of more than 40 percent.
UMASS Albert Sherman Center
When the University of Massachusetts Medical School unveiled its $400-million, state-of-the-art Albert Sherman Center in early 2013 on its Worcester, MA, campus, it was said that it would allow the school to “enter a new era of biomedical research, medical education and campus collaboration.” Collaboration would also play a prominent role in how the 11-story, 512,000-square-foot building would be cooled during the warm and humid summers that are quite common locally.
Making Montpelier more manageable
Vermont capital’s District Energy system has been a resounding success with the aid of SWEP BPHEs.
Powerful technology for a modern venue.
The awarded-winning Tele2 Arena in the Swedish capital of Stockholm can easily host both major concerts and all kinds of sports competitions. Powerful brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs) from SWEP allow for a swift and reliable laying of good-quality ice for winter sports events.
Heat exchangers bring 34% higher capacity to new energy transfer station
More power and less maintenance combined with reliable operation. The new energy transfer station in Danish Glostrup have found a cost-effective solution with two of SWEP’s B649 brazed plate heat exchangers.
Reliable BPHE for sensitive research
After a public tender, the Catholic University of Leuven (KU Leuven) in Belgium awarded Cofely Axima (GDF SUEZ) parts of the contract to build a new chemical laboratory.
Göteborg Energi sees the bigger picture
Gothenburg is a port city with a strategic location between Oslo and Copenhagen. With a population of approximately 530,000 it is Sweden’s second largest city. As Western Sweden's leading energy company, Göteborgs Energi has been supplying the city with district heating since 1952. However, the company does not just supply residential and commercial buildings. By adding a car manufacturer plant and a ferry to the grid, energy utilization is optimized.
Critical IT equipment requires efficient cooling
When the India-based IT company Infosys Technologies Ltd. selected Schneider Electric to install a system for a Data Center Cooling application, Schneider decided to opt for an efficient SWEP brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE).
Efficient cooling of Infosys’ Data Center
A large Data Center needs a powerful cooling solution. Infosys Technologies Ltd., a leading IT company with its headquarters in Bangalore, India, wanted a cost-efficient solution with high efficiency. They opted for a SWEP brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE), due to its additional advantage of having a low carbon footprint.
Dutch tap water
Due to safety reasons, during the past decades, the Dutch market has opted for double-wall tap water Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers (BPHEs) in their district heating networks.
Compact and reliable BPHEs at Hadeed District Cooling Plant
Located in the Jubail Industry City of Saudi Arabia, the Hadeed District Cooling Plant has replaced all existing chillers and DX units which have previously served individual buildings in the area.
Tap water with extreme hardness
Ringsjön is a lake in southern Sweden from which tap water is drawn. The very hard water (dH 11) imposes severe stress on the equipment used. After 4-6 years' operation, four SWEP heat exchangers used for heating the tap water were brought to SWEP’s laboratory for testing.
