North America Contractors Visit

29. October 2018 - 31. October 2018

North America Contractors Visit

We have now had 3 successful visits from the North American universities to Denmark and this makes possible the opportunity to continue and develop this ongoing programme further. The most recent in May, was another very successful tour which on this occasion show-cased our proficiency in District Heating in Jutland.

As with the previous events, we will cooperate with the District Energy Alliance and the Danish embassy in Washington.

We have invited contractors who build DH systems in cities and at campuses. Expectations for participation are 10 -15 persons from different North American contractors.

Please see the preliminary draft for the event: US Contractors tour to Denmark-first draft program; of course Danish companies/locations will be completed following your commitment to the event. So please come with your suggestions for site visits.

Participation and costs will be similar to the previous event, details can be viewed below.

The tour will focus on:

  • Role of a contractor, consulting engineer and project owner
  • Dividing and minimizing project risks when implementing DH
  • Minimizing cost of construction
  • Renewables (e.g. bio mass, solar, heat pumps, geothermal, ATES)
  • Site visits and practical examples (e.g. pipes being welded, meters installed, substations being build, visits to plants, visit to campuses eg)

Besides the visits, we will also host a ‘Business Exchange Seminar’ where the contractors will present what they work with right now and the Danish companies will be invited to showcase their newest innovations. This will also be a great opportunity to network with the delegation and to be continued at the networking dinner.
