Energy audit revealed uneconomical operation of the heat source and the relevant heat equipment. The site was supplied with heat from its own central boiler room via the heat distribution piping and subsequently through the heat transfer stations the DHW was heated and the heating water was heated by the primary steam medium. In this way, up to 40% of energy was lost on the distribution system.
