Kakola Heat Pump Plant

The Kakola Heat Pump Plant uses the waste heat from the Kakolanmäki Wastewater Treatment Plant and produces both district heating and district cooling for properties in Turku. So the heat pump plant gets its energy from a renewable energy source!

The Kakola Heat Pump Plant has been excavated in the rock in connection with the Kakolanmäki Wastewater Treatment Plant. Upon completion, the heat pump plant reduced the consumption of fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions in the area, as it could partially replace the use of coal at the Naantali Power Plant.
