We have expanded our collection of Crystal Chimneys – thanks to the GreenNet project in Liberec

The Crystal Chimney, awarded annually by the Heating Association of the Czech Republic, is perceived as the Oscar in the field of energy. Our MVV group collection has recently expanded with another valuable statuette: the association appreciated the extensive GreenNet project, which our subsidiary Teplárna Liberec implemented between 2018 and 2020 in the Liberec districts of Pavlovice and Ruprechtice.

At a cost of around 300 million crowns, approximately 9.7 km of steam pipelines were successfully replaced with more efficient, high-quality hot water pipelines. The heating plant renovated 29 exchanger stations and put into operation a new central exchanger station with an output of 40 MW and a new cogeneration unit with an output of 1 MW. The savings, converted to primary energy, are over 87,000 GJ. In addition to savings, the inhabitants of Liberec also gained a number of new public spaces.

The prizes were awarded to the four winning Projects of 2020 by Tomáš Drápela, Chairman of the Executive Board of the Heating Association of the Czech Republic, at the Heating and Energy Days in Olomouc on 14 September 2021.
