The Object of this report is the district heating snow melt system installed in Notodden, Norway.The heat is generated by 4.7MW woodchip burner, together with oil and electrical boilers to cover peak loads.The heat is transported to the customers via distribution pipes with hot water. The aim of this research was to make field observations based on physical modeling. Manual about installations for the field observationsis provided in this report. As a task was to observe real-time snow melt process all data information is provided vise analysis. Different problem of the heat losses were described in there port. Few way of reducing heat losses and saving operation cost were discussed. It was provided results of real-time Experiment with conditions in low surrounding temperature and dried street. All Pictures that were provided in this report were discussed and explained.
