Volvo Group invests in geothermal cooling
The Volvo Group invests 40 MSEK in a geothermal cooling facility in the transmission factory in Köping. The investment will reduce the energy consumption of the operations and create a more comfortable working environment in the factory for the employees.
The geothermal cooling is estimated to lower the factory’s electricity and district heating consumption by 500 MWh a year. That equals the annual district heating consumption of 300 houses.
