eMAG Warehouse, Joita, Romania

Uponor & eMAG take a step forward towards sustainable industrial heatin

Uponor took another step towards sustainable radiant heating after providing an optimal heating solution for a logistics warehouse that was, at the time of opening, the largest in South-East Europe.
The challenge of the eMAG beneficiary turned into a project designed for the future, with long-term optimized costs.
The largest online retailer in Romania has built two logistics warehouses totaling 250,000 m² in Joita commune, Giurgiu county. Each of them came with its own architecture, specific needs and constant activity in the interior space.

From challenging to pioneering
How do you heat a hall of over 120,000 m² sustainably, reducing operational costs by making monthly energy consumption more efficient?
The challenge began in 2018, with the construction of the first eMAG warehouse, which was a pioneer for industrial floor heating.
Conventional solutions meant heated air mounted on the roof. Warm air rises, so a higher temperature would have been needed to heat a huge hall at ground level. This means high energy costs.
An area of 120,000 m², equivalent to more than 10 football pitches, needs sustainable solutions for air conditioning, which are functional and efficient, from an energy point of view, for a long period of time.

Optimizing materials by heating active surfaces
If until then industrial floor heating meant activating the entire surface, for the eMAG warehouse, Uponor, together with a team of designers, came up with a solution specially designed for a huge space of 120,000 m²:

The heated areas are the extremities and other areas totaling another 40 - 45 square km, which distribute a homogeneous temperature throughout the hall.


The Uponor team involved in the project:
Ana Trifan Diaconu - Project Area Sales Manager & Design Support
Mihai Istoc - Area Sales Manager Uponor Bucharest
Razvan Dieaconu - Technical Support Engineer
Uponor Poland, PDC division - engineering center providing expertise for complex projects.
