Already in 1969 the waste-to-energy incineration plant in Bremen-Findorff has been put into operation. The power plant is used for the disposal of wastes with particularly low heating value, e. g. domestic waste. The heat occurring during the waste incineration process is in turn used for energy supply. In Bremen the rejected heat from the power plant is used to supply the university, the technology park nearby and some residential areas in striking distance by the means of district heating. In addition, the waste-to-energy incineration plant in Bremen has started producing electrical current in larger quantities after its modernisation and expansion in the years between 2001 and 2005. By using domestic waste instead of fossil fuels CO2 emissions can be reduced considerably. thermofin® delivered a dry cooling plant consisting of three dry coolers including a base frame made of steel. The total capacity of the installed units amounts to 2,500 kW.
