News and press releases from WindNODE



A look at the project work at Stadtwerke Frankfurt (Oder)

As a WindNODE partner with experience in the operation of its generating units and cross-border district heating supply, Stadtwerke Frankfurt (Oder) are developing IT solutions for fully automatic control of all necessary processes in generating units as part of the transformation project.

This is mandatory because the grid conditions often change so quickly as a result of the feed-in of wind and solar power that manual control is scarcely possible. The automatic control ensures the optimal operation of the generating units and, therefore, the most efficient use of renewable energy.

Frankfurt (Oder), on the German side of the border, is often called a “twin city” with the Polish city of Slubice. Since 2015, they are connected by a district heating line. A heat transfer station (WÜST 8.0) operated by Stadtwerke Frankfurt (Oder) controls the exchange of heat between the two cities. In times of heat demand on one side and a heat surplus on the other side, an exchange can take place, optimising the costs and the load on the units.

A short film by ASEW-Movie shows the challenges and opportunities of the cross-border heat supply between Frankfurt (Oder) and Slubice. The film is available on YouTube: Watch Film
