Day-care centre to be built with energy piles, Vantaa, Finland

Day-care centre to be built with energy piles

As requested by the City of Vantaa, the Vaaralanpuisto day-care centre has been planned based on the "nearly 0 energy days" concept. Construction work for the day-care centre began in late summer 2016, and the project will be completed in July 2017. Project costs are estimated at EUR 5.4 million, and the day-care centre will accommodate about 130 children. Among the various energy production options available for the site, the City of Vantaa chose the energy pile and solar thermal collector system jointly developed by Uponor and Ruukki.

54 piles, 1240 m2 Underfloor heating

Energy piles as structural elements

District heating was the first option presented during the project planning phase. The costs for connection to the district heating network  became too high, especially due to the construction of connection pipes. Therefore, a set of new options had to be weighed.

The survey  carried out to determine the foundation method showed that piles were the way to go. Therefore, the use of energy piles was justified.  

-As per the "zero energy" concept, the use of renewable energy was one of the basic promises. In the end, we opted for the energy pile system on the basis of the case examples and presentations of the Ruukki-Uponor cooperation. The system is equipped with solar thermal collectors as well as energy panels for additional energy production, says project manager Tapani Torppa from the City of Vantaa.

Energy piles serve as both structural load-bearing piles and geothermal heat collectors. There are a total of about 70 piles, 50 of which are energy piles. The piles were driven all the way to the bedrock, i.e. to a depth of 15 to 20 metres. No bedrock drilling was required as the calculations and energy simulation showed that the energy piles, energy collectors, panels and solar energy recovery system were adequate sources of heat and electricity. In summer, solar thermal collectors are used to store heat in the ground in order for the system to function as planned in winter. Uponor's and Ruukki's own experts as well as university experts have been used in energy simulations and in the planning and calculation of energy needs.
 

Uponor heavily involved in project implementation

Uponor will install the energy collection pipes to the steel piles delivered by Ruukki, as well as the solar thermal collectors. It will also plan and install the heat pump. The site's heat distribution system will be Uponor's underfloor heating.

-This kind of expertise is available nowhere else in Finland, which is why Uponor monitors the implementation. The aim is to plan and build an optimal solution based on our  "nearly 0 energy days" concept. Furthermore, after completion of the site, Uponor will train the personnel responsible for the technical maintenance and use of the City of Vantaa's properties,  in order for the energy systems to function optimally as planned, emphasises project manager Tapani Torppa from the City of Vantaa.

Therefore cooling the air is an important factor in maintaining their comfort during their stay. In order to keep the daily work undisturbed, the system used should be installed easily, should be efficient economically, and should be hygienic.

The New Deichmanske Library - Bjørvika, Oslo

Deichman is equipped with Thermally Active Building System - a system for storing the energy in the concrete ceiling. It is primarily a cooling system, but it can also be used as a heating system. When in cooling mode, no energy is used as the heat is drawn into the concrete, only when it is transferred from the concrete and into the water pipes that are cast in the decking. The need for installed power is reduced, and operating expenses are significantly reduced as opposed to in a air-based cooling system. The TABS is cast into the Prefab elements, which is a BubbleDeck construction with spans up to 10.5 meters.
