Energy concept for innovative media supply

Sustainable and ecological supply concept for CreativQuartier Zeche Fürst Leopold

On the site of the former Fürst Leopold coal mine in Dorsten, a real trendy quarter has been created with art, culture, literature, gastronomy, commerce and housing.  The charm of the quarter is largely due to the fact that the mining facilities have been preserved without major changes and have been integrated into the current use. ENGIE's energy concept is new and up to date: In cooperation with Prisma GmbH & Co. KG, ENGIE is moving into a green energy future and is continuously developing the CreativQuartier Fürst Leopold ecologically and economically.

The challenge of the project was the long-term implementation and the mix of landmarked existing properties of the former coal mine and energetically modern new buildings. The project covers an implementation phase from 2014 to 2022. 

Modern gas condensing boilers with an output of 1.2 MW were initially installed to ensure the heat supply to the existing buildings and the first new buildings. As part of the further project development, the energy concept will be supplemented by a CHP system and heat pump for sustainable energy supply.

Over the contract period of 20 years, ENGIE will manage the plants in their entirety, including the local heating network and the house transfer stations.  ENGIE's services include operations management, maintenance work, 24-hour emergency and fault services and energy purchasing.
