Environmentally friendly and cost-effective heat generation

The SWK heating and power station operates according to the environmentally friendly principle of cogeneration (KWK). That means: we simultaneously generate electricity and heat and thus save one third of primary energy, such as e.g. natural gas. This helps us to reduce cost and the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2).  In addition, our flue gas cleaning equipment meets the latest technological standards, and thus guarantees minimum  pollutant emission.

Comfortable heating supply

The heat generated by KWK heats water up to 130 degrees C. A closed piping system delivers the hot water directly to your home; well insulated pipes prevent heat loss. At the transfer station, heat exchangers transfer the heat to your central heating system. Just turn it on and in only a few minutes it is pleasantly warm. The cooled off water flows back into the heating and power station and is reheated again.

Volume makes the difference

The more houses we supply with district heating, the more the urban eco-balance is relieved.  Connecting the US-properties was a big step - a contribution to the quality of life in Kaiserslautern.
