By heating this centre of sporting excellence using wastewater systems.
The Nice Agency (Marseille Regional Division) has partnered with Veolia to install Energido systems down on the Côte d’Azur. Two years after the first worksite was completed in Saint-Laurent-du-Var, it’s now the turn of Antibes water-sports stadium.
A profitable solution: using heat from a public sewer main
Antibes City Council launched the project to redevelop the water-sports stadium’s outdoor facilities, opting to recover energy from wastewater systems to heat the pools.
The recommended and selected energy solution recovers heat stored in the public sewer main running past the site on Route de Nice .
Though Veolia is managing the full installation on the client’s premises, SADE is handling the works on public land.
The works, carried out on the outdoor pool supply between January and June 2020, involved diverting wastewater from the public sewer main and setting up a pumping and heat exchange system.
The worksite in detail:
- 1 pumping station
- 1 wastewater exchanger
- 1 water/water heat pump for heating and cooling
- 1 plate exchanger for pool cooling
- 1 hot water accumulator tank for heat storage
- Requisite hydraulic systems
They will heat the pools over the winter months and cool them in summer. Ultimately, the complex will be heated via two independent heating plants, one for the buildings and indoor pools, and the other to heat the outdoor pools.
