The cooling energy generated by the plant is distributed within each building connected via an inter-connected network. The main CLIMESPACE network, the "Centre" network, lies in the heart of Paris (1st, 2nd, 7th, 8th, 9th and 16th arrondissements). A second network, named the "Bercy" network, serves the 12th and 13th arrondissements.
A network 75 km long
The entire CLIMESPACE network is made up of two separate pipelines, one “outgoing” line that brings chilled water to customers’ distribution stations, the other “return” line taking warmed water to the production plants. The temperature of the chilled water supplied via the “outgoing” line from the production unit ranges from 1 to 4°C. The “return” water comes back between 12 and 14°C.
Entirely underground, the network utilizes the Paris sewage infrastructure or circulates beneath public right of ways. Interconnected, the network is subject to regular, daily monitoring. The CLIMESPACE system offers all customers wide flexibility of use and service reliability.
