Since 2017, Massileo has been serving the Smartseille eco-district, which covers 2.7 hectares at the heart of Euroméditéranée 2 in Marseille, France. Its network is composed of a tempered water loop that connects the seawater caloric recovery station, located on the port of Marseille, with heat pumps installed into the basement of the buildings: this technology makes it possible to produce energy locally by pooling the energy needs of the different buildings (offices, housing, shops) whilst avoiding waste.
The Massileo project has allowed the eco-district to reach 75% of renewable energy, a 21 MG of heat and cold production capacity and zero combustion gas emissions. Compared to an energy solution derived from fossil fuels, Massileo has enabled an 80% reduction in CO2 emissions on 58,000 m² of housing, offices and activities. Massileo’s innovative energy solution is highly replicable wherever the sea is close!
