Waternet, the water company for Amsterdam and surroundings, will be providing heat and cold from drinking water

Waternet, the water company for Amsterdam and surroundings, will be providing heat and cold from drinking water, says the alderman Udo Kock of Amsterdam.

The national blood bank Sanquin will use the cold coming from drinking water for the cooling of pharmaceutical production this winter. The cold is extracted from water in two large drinking water pipes located near Sanquin in Amsterdam. The blood bank will use a part of the cold directly, the rest is stored underground for use in the summer.

Heat from drinking water will be used in the new district Plantage de Sniepen in Diemen next summer. The heat will be extracted during summer from the relatively warm drinking water and will be stored for heating 376 homes in the next winter.
