Siemens technology helps heat downtown Toronto

Keeping the temperature just right. That's Ingenuity for life.

Toronto City Hall

Like all Canadians, Torontonians rely on the comfort of heated buildings in the cold of winter. Considering that hundreds of thousands of people live or work in the heart of the city, providing reliable heating is critical.

Whether it's hospitals, arts and cultural landmarks, office towers or residential buildings, people in downtown Toronto can count on reliable heat on cold days. Enwave Energy's flagship downtown plant uses massive water-tube boilers to generate heat that's distributed through a 40-km underground pipe network.


The Enwave plant is reliably automated, monitored and managed by the Siemens PCS 7 process control system. Sophisticated instruments oversee key processes and provide critical real-time information via intuitive, Human Machine Interface displays from Siemens.

Siemens definitely has played a key role in terms of contributing to the increase in efficiencies.
