Innov-SWAC is the first conference dedicated to SWAC. It is sponsored by the European project EuroSWAC, and will be organised and hosted by the Club SWAC France on 8 December 2022 virtually.

The EuroSWAC project is itself co-financed by the ERDF, Interreg France Channel England.

Conference topic: SWAC, a growing technology

While the cooling needs of coastal regions and ports are increasing, cooling is still mainly produced by chillers. This technology uses large amounts of electricity generated mainly by fossil fuels, which slows down the achievement of many countries’ energy and climate targets. However, alternative cooling and heating solutions exist.
SWAC (Sea Water Air Conditioning) is a simple technology based on pumping cold water from the seas and oceans. It can be used to produce thermal energy for buildings (hospitals, data centres, etc.) or industrial processes (cold rooms, drying, ice production, etc.).

SWAC system requires close collaboration with industry and marine engineering to develop innovative technological aspects such as: reduced installation costs through a self-burying system or reduced supply costs through flexible pipes.

Numerous technical (as mentioned above) and economic innovations contribute to the development of the SWAC solution.

The webinar organised by Club SWAC France on the 8th of December will be the opportunity for all the actors of this development to present these innovations.
