8MW industrial solar heating plant harvests its first sunrays

Date: 06/08/2019

Back in April 2019, Aalborg CSP received an order from the Danish utility and energy supply company SK Forsyning to deliver an 8MW industrial solar heating plant. Now, only a few months after cutting the first sod, the plant has harvested its first sunrays, thereby producing energy for the first time.

During the past few months, thousands of people crossing the Great Belt in Denmark have been able to observe the construction of the 11,733 m2 solar field in a field along the Danish highway.

A few months after construction commenced in Halsskov near Korsør (Denmark), the system has through its 950 flat panel collectors harvested its first sunrays and on its first day produced 35 MWh energy.

Combined with the district heating plant’s new biomass boiler, the solar heating plant will soon provide cheap, sustainable heating for 5,000 households in Korsør and Halsskov.
