Nykøbing Sj. Heating Plant was commissioned in 1964 and the gas-heated plant delivers district heating to 1.845 consumers on a daily basis. In 2014, the plant which is one of the larger ones in Denmark brought in a 20.000 m2 solar heating system which provides the consumers with solar heated water.
Klaus Hansen has been Plant Manager since 2007. With the new solar heating system, the plant has got a new way of producing electricity and Klaus Hansen especially benefits from Energi Danmark’s forecasts for solar radiation which help him plan the production.
Nykøbing Sj. Heating Plant chose Energi Danmark as balance responsible in 2006 due to useful software for production planning. Nykøbing Sj. was one of the first plants being certified in UK which meant a possibility to earn money on LEC certificates. Even though the certification only lasted a year, Klaus Hansen is very pleased with the fact that Energi Danmark always explores new opportunities for earnings. In addition, it is especially the 24/7 on-call service that facilitates his work and helps provide peace of mind.
“I feel very safe knowing that I can always call the 24/7 on-call service. They always give me a quick and accurate answer. Sometimes, Energi Danmark contacts me to see if we have the possibility of increasing or decreasing the production. The advice from Energi Danmark is always competent and professional, and I see our cooperation as a valuable partnership where we trust each other”, concludes Klaus Hansen.
