Technical Tour 12 September: Broenderslev utilities tour

We go on a bus trip to Broenderslev, where you can see how the power of the sun even so far north can add to the green transition. Broenderslev municipality north of Aalborg has among other initiatives the aim to become fossil free for their district heating.  Here you can visit a state-of-the-art energy plant that uses local wood chips and concentrated solar power to supply district heating and electricity to the town of Brønderslev with a population of 12,000 people. The energy plant has been expanded with 5 km of CSP solar collectors and together with two chip boilers supply the energy to an ORC turbine. Furthermore, the plant’s electricity needs are partly covered by introducing concentrated solar power in their heat production.
