Rhine Supplies Thermal Energy via New Large-Scale Heat Pump
18 metres long, around five metres high, and highly efficient: Mannheim-based energy company MVV is building a river water source heat pump along the bank of the Rhine by the GKM power station in Mannheim. The heat pump extracts thermal energy from the river and uses it to produce heating water. Around 90 stakeholders from industry, politics, and science were present to witness the official start of construction.
