Wi6Labs delivers Elvaco products to project with metro heated homes in Rennes
The project, where apartment buildings are heated by the metro, is the first of its kind in France.
The solution is implemented in four stations of the Rennes metro which all have the right characteristics to work as large heat exchangers. The first building to be heated by the metro is the Emblem building, located above Cleunay station. Thanks to the project, the main part of the buildings' heat needs, i.e. heating and domestic hot water will be covered. When the project is finished, three buildings will be heated by the metro.
One of the products used in this project is the CMi4160 provided by our partner Wi6Labs. The CMi4160 is a Meter Connectivity Module with LoRaWAN® communication for the Diehl Metering SHARKY 775 heat meter and is used for collecting meter data.
