King opens BioWarmteCentrale Purmerend with a swipe

24,000 households and 1,000 businesses in Purmerend are connected to so-called district heating. Last month, his Majesty the King opened BioWarmteCentrale “Purmer” for the purpose of Purmerend district heating. Already since the beginning of the eighties, the residents of Purmerend make use of district heat. Previously district heating used gray waste heat. Today, 80% of the demand is durable. The BioWarmteCentrale burns wood chips coming from the Dutch state forest maintenance. King Willem Alexander opened the BioWarmteCentrale by swiping the touch screen on a special designed panel. The screen provides insight how much the power station is really green and what the savings are. This panel was developed by ICT. It shows actual results through a live connection with the power station. Purmerend citizens are not only provided with heat but the panel will also provide clear information about the new BioWarmteCentrale.
