The utility provider EINS ENERGIE has extended the cooling unit of the Chemnitz Hospital Center. Central component is the cooling reservoir with a height of 16 meters and a diameter of 10 meters. This state-of-the-art cooling equipment is increasing the performance of the system from 1,200 to 2,000 kilowatts and is now covering the growing demand on cooling energy.
EINS ENERGIE is providing cooling energy based on environment-friendly power-heat cogeneration to the Chemnitz Hospital Center since 1998. At the EINS power plant, electricity and heat is energy-efficient produced. Long-distance pipelines are supplying thermal energy to the Hospital Center, where a unit is transforming it into cooling energy.
AIC was contracted for the engineering of all technical facilities.

Hoehenpromenade street will become “Heart of Gorbitz”
Until 2015 the dull pedestrian area in the heart of Gorbitz is to be transformed into a vibrant boulevard. To date the Hoehenpromenade street at the Leutewitzer Ring is a dull pedestrian zone without any shops or people there. On top of this comes the fact that non-rehabilitated buildings of prefabricated concrete slabs (Plattenbauten) and run-down passages even intensify this impression.
In midyear 2008 a future workshop was launched for this reason, whose more than 40 participants created visions of a vivid Hoehenpromenade as the new centre of Gorbitz. Amongst others, associations, tradespersons, landlords and the quarter management contributed their ideas – everyone is interested in increasing the attractiveness of this important centre line in the district.
Free space – living space – greenery – very good location – good view – close to city centre – modernly developed – functionally designed – flexibly alterable – innovative – inspiring – vibrant – colourful – communicative – young – suitable for families – adequate for senior citizens – favourable rents – close to educational institutions: these topics have been taken in consideration while planning the future development of the centre line.
According to the Agency of Urban Planning the remodelling will cost 33 Mill Euros. This can be partially state-aided by financial means from the federal programme “Soziale Stadt” (socially integrative city).
