Friedrich secures a contract for FWS-West in Hamburg

Friedrich Vorwerk Group SE wins significant parts of the major contract for the realization of the new district heating pipeline “Fernwärmesystemanbindung-West” (FWS-West) in Hamburg. The contract is worth more than 70 million. The planned district heating pipeline is an essential prerequisite for the successful heat transition in the city of Hamburg. In the course of the large-scale project FWS-West, the share of coal heat in Hamburg’s district heating system is to be significantly reduced through the construction of a highly efficient combined heat and power (CHP) plant as well as the utilization of industrial climate-neutral waste heat sources in the south of Hamburg.

The aim of the associated, more than 7 kilometers long district heating pipeline is to transport the climate-friendly district heat from the planned CHP plant Dradenau through the Waltershof port area, in a new tunnel under the River Elbe, to the existing district heating west line in Hamburg-Bahrenfeld. By 2025, this is expected to save 360,000 tons of CO2 annually.

With the planned district heating pipeline, Friedrich Vorwerk can once again demonstrate its excellent technology and implementation expertise for district heating systems.
