Figure 1: The energy system of the
existing Tine dairy in Trondheim
consists of a process ice water supply
with four NH3 chillers, which
together have a capacity of 2,700 kW.
A transcritical CO2 heat pump with
a capacity of 160 kW is also installed
for hot water production. Furthermore,
a 300 m3 ice water storage tank
as a buffer, an electric heater for the
process hot water with 3,000 kW.
The newly added HTWP relieves the
process hot water production as well
as the ice water production.
