Visit to Kiev 4-6 December, 2017

Visit to Kiev 4-6 December, 2017

Kiev was the destination of yet another visit to Ukraine undertaken by Danish companies together with DBDH on December 5-6th. The purpose of the trip was to highlight potential business opportunities that can be seized by Danish district heating technology providers and Ukrainian district heating companies in the years to come.

Tailored by DBDH in cooperation with the Danish Embassy in Kiev, the intensive two-day visit programme consisting of a seminar and meetings provided some interesting food for thought for both parties:

    • Firstly, there is room for improvement in the Ukrainian district heating sector, since the existing systems – mainly centralised heating systems – are in need of an upgrade
    • Lastly, it was evident that the Danish technology providers were very keen on entering or further establishing themselves in the Ukrainian market, but financial obstacles, such as access to capital and risk coverage are issues that have to be considered. In this connection, Danida Business Finance offers financing opportunities for Danish technology providers seeking to form cooperations with Ukrainian district heating companies.

The Ukrainian partner for the event, Ukrteplokomunenergo, had invited their members to participate in the venue, so more than 30 district heating companies accepted the invitation to meet the delegation from Denmark. The Danish business delegation was formed by the following companies: ABB, BROEN, COWI, Danfoss, EPIKA, Grundfos, Kamstrup, LOGSTOR, Unotransport and Aarsleff. Elsebeth Arendt, AffaldVarme Aarhus, participated as representative from the Danish utility sector; her presentation set focus on how the system works in Denmark, and fostered a good dialogue with the Ukrainian district heating companies.
