Demonstration sites

Spirit-Heat / Demo Sites

SPIRIT aims at demonstrating three heat pump technologies integrated at three different process sites in the paper and food sectors with sink temperatures between 135°C and 160°C.
The three industrial heat pumps will be installed into the operational production facilities of a sugar company (Belgium), a prawn processing plant (Norway) and a paper mill (Czech Republic).

Each demo-site will involve three different partners: one knowledge provider, one technology provider and one end-user. These demonstrations will provide evidence that industrial heat pumps can be integrated into existing processes without disturbing the production process as well as increase technical knowledge and provide guidelines on heat pump integration.
A successful demonstration of the SPIRIT project will ensure that industrial heat pump technology for high-temperature applications reaches TRL 8.
