Replication study on waste heat recovery from datacentre

On July 28-29th, Giorgio Bonvicini and Sara Abd Alla from our ReUseHeat consortium partner RINA were in Vilnius (Lithuania) to have meetings and site visits with Vilniaus Šilumos Tinklai (VST), the company managing District Heating in Vilnius and Telecentras, the national TV, radio and communication company.

VST and Telecentras are among the beneficiaries of the replication studies that the ReUseHeat project is providing for free to support the realization of investments in excess heat recovery investments across Europe.

In the case of Vilnius, the excess heat source being studied is a datacentre to be built by Telecentras in the upcoming months, which could provide up to 1.5 MW of heat to the local District Heating network managed by VST, with a 80% reduction of primary energy consumptions and GHG emissions compared to the baseline.
