Students are helping Trixi for saving

Grandaunts are looking for possibilities for saving energy for Großschönau bath. Also other municipalities put on such helping.

Yvonne Geldner and Alexander Rewerk are studying industrial engineering with the specialization of energy management and energy technology at the University of Applied Sciences Zittau/ Görlitz. Currently, they are writing their diploma thesis and are working on a topic for “Trixipark Großschönau GmbH” (a holyday park with an adventure pool). Already in their semester before they did work on a topic for this municipal institution.

German press release: Yvonne Geldner and Alexander Rewerk are currently completing their practical training in collaboration with a municipal institution in Großschönau

Yvonne Geldner and Alexander Rewerk are sitting concentrated in front of their laptops on the campus at University of Applied Sciences. They are analyzing lists of heat consumption and electricity of the Trixibad from the last two years. The first step is to analyse the Data. They are a part of those students in the administrative district, who were placed by an EU-funded program.

Based on an evaluation, which they made one semester ago, they will find out possibilities for saving energy in the Trixibad in the next month. This evaluation was made in connection with a study in their seventh semester. At this time, they planned a 1,25km long district heating pipeline from the nearby biogas station with combined heat and power station (CHP) to the bath. The Trixibad currently used heat and electricity from an external CHP and the farmer from the biogas station currently feed only the produced electricity into the grid. Therefore, the by-product heat could be used by the bath.

Another idea is to build up a kind of heating grit with the municipal “Housing and Heat supply Company Großschönau” to supply also heat to the municipal apartments. Among another part, the students are currently analyzing this idea in their 6-month diploma phase. […]
