Hotels and resorts need a lot of energy to operate! The Deltapark has implemented the latest technology to reduce the use of precious resources. Already during the construction of the resort in 2016, care was taken to work wherever possible with local construction companies, thus reducing transportation distances and increasing the use of local building materials. A construction method with renewable pre-insulated wooden elements was also chosen.
The following is an excerpt of our efforts to operate our resort in a sustainable manner:
The roofs of the parking garage, the “Sporthaus” and parts of the delta houses produce electricity. Approximately 10% of our annual usage is produced in this way. A large part of the electricity purchased elsewhere stems from renewable power sources (hydro power, solar power, biogas).
Ventilation systems, tumble dryers and heating systems are equipped with a heat recovery system. The recycled heat is used to bring our warm water tanks to a temperature of up to 40° Celsius without having to rely on outside power sources.
Central ventilation system in the rooms
In order to reduce heat loss in the cold season, the guest rooms are equipped with comfort ventilation. Tempered fresh outside air is brought into all rooms in this way – windows do not have to be opened to bring in fresh air.
Wood pellet heating instead of oil
With the construction of the Deltapark in 2016 a new heating distribution was installed on the site with modern insulation. Pellet heating replaced the previous oil burners and is supported by a modern and efficient gas heating system for the coldest days of the year with higher heat demand.
