Dartmouth and Hanover City delegation visits DBDH and members

Date: 13 September 2019

Following a previous visit to Denmark, the Dartmouth and Hanover City delegation arrived in Copenhagen earlier this week, looking for Danish inspired solutions to convert their steam to hot water and expansion of a district cooling system, replacing fossil fuels with clean biomass and a massive building upgrade of buildings with some dating back to the 18th century. The city was also interested in learning more about district heating, biomass, urban planning as well as building upgrade / building renovation.

Dartmouth is so convinced of Danish technology that they specify directly in their tender material that they want pre-insulated EN pipes, which brings Logstor, Isoplus, Ramboll and other Danish companies to the forefront in delivering design and equipment for the project.

DBDH had the pleasure of creating a programme for Wednesday 11th September where Halsnæs Forsyning shared their successful heat production exclusively on biofuels, St. Merløse heating plant displayed their turnkey straw plant, The City of Albertslund kindly showcased their extensive city development renovation programme and Frederiksberg Utility – municipally owned, multi supply organisation located in the heart of Copenhagen offered an insight into their daily operations and responsibilities.

Following a presentation by our guests, Dall Energy, DEVCCO, Danfoss, ABB, Logstor, Ross Engineering and Geoop presented their relevant expertise and successfully created ongoing dialogues in regard to the Dartmouth project.
