Aalborg CSP Secures Flat Panel Order for Industrial Solar Heating Plant in Denmark

Denmark will get to see renewable energy in full bloom in the shape of a 11,733 m² solar field. Aalborg CSP has announced that it has landed the project and will be delivering an 8 MWth solar district heating plant consisting of flat panel solar thermal collectors to be installed along the Danish highway. The system in Halskov near Korsør will be the company’s fourth flat panel project in the country and is yet another example of a customized solution from Aalborg CSP designed to fit individual energy needs in an optimal way.

With a clear ambition of becoming independent of fossil fuels by 2050, Denmark sets the bar high in terms of energy goals. The country’s ambitious climate and energy policy has led to a position as world leader within all forms of renewable energy - both in terms of developing green energy solutions, and when it comes to the country’s own clean energy transition. Solar energy plays a significant role in this transition with solar heating already being an integrated part of the Danish district heating industry – an area which is well-known territory for Aalborg CSP.

Aalborg CSP received the order from the Danish utility and energy supply company SK Forsyning to deliver the 8 MWth solar heating plant. The solar heating plant is to be integrated with the district heating plant’s new biomass boiler and will supplement the delivery of energy to the plant’s existing customers in Korsør as well as the many future district heating customers in Halskov.

“In order for us to be able to provide our customers with a lower heating bill, while also contributing to the country’s clean energy transition, looking towards the sun was an obvious choice for us. Energy from the sun alone can annually account for 15 percent of our district heating production. It was therefore natural for us to incorporate the sun into our strategy” – says Carsten Lunde, Head of energy at SK Forsyning.
