In Amersfoort, a special residential area has been developed: Vathorst. The houses do have their specific characteristics. However, a part of Vathorst is using surface energy for the heating of their homes. During the summer, heat will be recovered from the canal and stored in an ATES system. During winter time, the stored heat is used for heating.
IF has design the entire heating system, including the surface water unit. We have also performed the supervision during the realization of the system.
