Christeyns’ Sustainability Initiatives in Ghent (Belgium)

The residential project De Nieuwe Dokken is a first for Belgium and the surrounding area in the North of Ghent. The sustainable residential area along the water is provided with heat with the help of Christeyns.

One of the most important sustainable facilities for the project is the heat network. Callens, a specialist in heating techniques, provided heat exchangers in the production halls of nearby Christeyns. There, the residual heat that is released during the production process is collected and then sent to the heat network at a stable temperature. In total, more than 400 energy-efficient apartment houses and commercial units will be able to use the heat.
