The structure is supposed to contribute to the decrease of costs related to prototypes’ production, borne by innovative companies, which will have over 3 000 sq. m of space, designated for testing of various devices before integrating them into production lines. It is all about being able to firstly test it here, before the commercialization of a project or invention of, for instance, some device, not risking spending big money on starting production of something, what may have some defects or require perfectioning – explains Roman Trzaskalik, chairman of The Euro Centrum Science and Technology Park.
The building structure will meet the energy saving demands. According to ordinance of the European Union for newly created public utility buildings, annually demand for primary energy (non-renewable energy used to heating, ventilating, cooling, preparing warm municipal water and built-in lighting) cannot exceed 278 kWh (sq. m/year). The building owned by The Euro Centrum will use only 137 kWh (sq. m/year), that is a half less than the UE rate. Temperature in the hall, independent of atmospheric conditions, will reach 24° C, and heating of the building will be supported by an air heat pump.
The building will be also open for companies from the renewable energy sector (OZE), because the whole Euro Centrum profile is aimed at energy saving and effectively energy management, so that industry is especially welcomed – adds Trzaskalik chairman.
The assembly and storage hall along with a social and clerical hinterland will be commissioned on the turn of the year, constituting a supplement of The Euro Centrum Science and Technology Park infrastructure. It will be the next element of the “Creating of The Euro Centrum Science and Technology Park” project, which is co-financed from the European Regional Development Fund within Innovative Economy Operational Programme.
