Utility Sectors in Khabarovsk and Vladivostok are interested in cooperation with Danish companies. This is clear after an intense week, when a Danish delegation visited the two regions in the Far East of Russia: Khabarovsk Krai and Primorsky Krai (Vladivostok) to discuss energy efficiency and energy savings and how to transfer the Danish experience into a Russian context. The regions are situated in very cold zones with upto -40 degrees C during winter times.
The visit was arranged by Danish Embassy in Moscow and DBDH in close cooperation with the Regional Administrations of both regions. Danish Ambassador Thomas Winkler was the head of the delegation, which counted nine Danish companies: Sweco, Kamstrup, Danfoss, Hydro-X, Grundfos, Aalborg Engineering, Salling Plast, Siemens and Unotransport.
Opening of the event took place on 24 November in the House of Official receptions of the Government, by Litvinchuk Anatolij, Deputy Chairman of the Government, Utility Sector and Fuel-power complex and Danish Ambassador Thomas Winkler in the presence of all relevant stakeholders in the district heating sector in Khabarovsk. The Danish delegation presented latest trends in the Danish district heating sector as well as new technologies and solutions to an interested audience. Following the presentations many networking meetings and bilateral talks took place at the Danish parallel exhibition. “We will make the road map for future cooperation with Danish companies”, concluded Litvinchuk upon closing the Plenary Meeting.
During the following four days, the delegation had B-2-B meetings with relevant companies in the Khabarovsk and Primorsky region, such as: Dalnevostochnaya Generating Co., Khabarovskaya Teplosetevaya Co., MUP Teplosety, Khabarovsky Generation Co.,Primorskaya Generation, Primteploenergo, Vladivostok Electrichiskie Sety, Primorskiy Vodokanal. Many meetings with open and to the point dialogues, discussing challenges and possible solutions in cooperation with Danish companies. There is no doubt that modern Danish quality technologies are of high interest. Training in the use of the modern technologies are also important as is the after sales service that Danish companies will offer.
