Renewable energy which is generated at Sant’Antnin Waste Treatment Plant is transferred by convection to the neighbouring Inspire complex in order to heat their indoor pool and preheat the domestic hot water calorifier. The project required the installation of a 2km pipeline and related gear including a Building Management System to control and monitor the heat transfer.
While the Sant’Antnin plant was co-funded through EU funding, the additional investment required for the transfer of heat to the Inspire complex was funded entirely by local funds.
The project was recently selected by the European Commission to represent Malta in the campaign ‘A world you like, with a climate you like’ which brings together success stories in the field of climate change from each of the EU27 countries.
