Milestone for the long-distance heating project Lancy - Pont-Rouge (GE)

Bouygues Energies & Services has successfully completed an important stage of the project: the reception of the additional production plant and district heating systems for nine residential buildings. The client has underlined the quality of the work carried out.

The project is the result of a partnership between Bouygues Energies & Services and Energie 360°. The aim is to supply a group of buildings built around the SBB Lancy - Pont-Rouge station with thermal energy (heating and cooling), including an area for offices and shops, a residential area and a school.

Sustainable energy solution
The office and retail sector comprises five buildings with an area of 119,000 m2 . The residential sector consists of fifteen buildings for about 550 apartments and a school on an area of 64,000 m2.

At the end of the project, the estimated consumption of the entire district will be around 16.3 GWh per year, mainly thanks to the 300 geothermal probes drilled under the various buildings. The project will thus prevent the emission of around 833 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere for heating purposes (equivalent to the CO2 emitted by a car that would circle the earth 105 times a year).

Multi-technical expertise

In May, the teams from Bouygues Energies & Services at the Vernier (GE) site successfully commissioned a large part of the facilities the additional production plant and the district heating systems for nine residential buildings.

Energie 360° highlighted the quality of the work carried out by Bouygues Energies & Services. Once again, we were able to demonstrate our ability to develop, study, implement and manage this type of complex and multi-technical project. Since the first phase of commissioning in 2018, Bouygues Energies & Services has also been responsible for the technical operation and energy management of the entire plant.

The project started in March 2017 and will be completed by the end of 2022. There are further stages to be completed before the project is completed, namely the construction and commissioning of the district heating systems for two commercial buildings and five other residential buildings.
