Energy City Frederikshavn works on decreasing the use of fossil fuels and increasing the use of renewable energy – and several local businesses are riding the green tide.
Victor A/S is an example of this. After the immense decreases in oil prices, the company changed its focus.
“A few years back off shore and maritime solutions amounted 80-90% of our business, but today energy solutions are our main focus,” says Managing Director Ole Nygaard,
Wednesday, he and Energy City Frederikshavn welcomed a Chinese delegation from the Chengde province.
At the visit, Ole Nygaard told the Chinese visitors about Victor’s work in the green transition: the incineration plant Amager Bakke and the world’s largest solar collector park in Silkeborg.
Victor has provided the pipe installations for Amager Bakke, an architect designed incineration plant with a skiing slope on top. The plant can provide power for all of Copenhagen and imports garbage from England to fulfill its capacity.
The world’s largest solar collector park in Silkeborg covers 156,694 square meters and delivers power and heat for the entire city of Silkeborg.
The third leg in Victor’s green solutions is the development of heat pumps in cooperation with IESEnergy. Ole Nygaard and Energy City Frederikshavn’s Project Manager Poul Rask both see great potential in the coming LNG-plant in Port of Frederikshavn. It will deliver liquid gas for the shipping industry and surplus heat for the district heating system.
“China has a great potential in the green transition. We are steps ahead of them, especially in terms of technologies related to heat pumps. Hopefully, we can inspire them and give them ideas, which they can realize at home,” says Ole Nygaard.
Victor A/S has 150 employees and has offices in Frederikshavn and Esbjerg.
