Creating a New Cooling Business in Västerås

For local utility company Mälar Energi, FVB helped evaluate the district cooling business potential in Västerås, Sweden. We prepared concept designs, estimated revenues and expenses, and helped sell the concept of district cooling to local business owners. Since the business case met the company’s investment criteria, they proceeded with the project, and FVB prepared the final design documents necessary to modify an existing heat pump system and construct the new piping system including customer connections. FVB also helped design rate structures, and negotiate contracts with the building owners. From the initial study in 1995 to the present (2002), FVB has helped Mälar Energi develop and expand the district cooling business in Västerås.
