Efficient use of process waste heat: optimization of the new lake water plant in Ipsach for a sustainable drinking water supply

The new lake water plant in Ipsach will produce drinking water for 70,000 people in the Biel/Nidau region in the canton of Bern. EPRO ENGINEERING carried out a comprehensive simulation study in IDA ICE (useful energy) from EQUA and Polysun (system simulation) from Velasolaris to ensure that the waste heat from the process can be optimally utilized.
