Compared to the old system, Boligbeton is set to reduce energy consumption by approximately 70 per cent. The heat pumps will also result in improved circulation and a more comfortable indoor climate.
Boligbeton delivers innovative concrete solutions to the Danish construction industry - covering residential, industrial and office construction.
Danish concrete producer Boligbeton’s ambition is to reduce CO₂ emissions significantly. Therefore, they have decided to replace all oil and gas heating with greener alternatives. Alongside Solar, they have found the right solution, which will ensure sustainable energy, a comfortable indoor climate and better business.
It takes a lot of water, heat and electricity to produce concrete panels round-the-clock. Boligbeton produces concrete panels for all types of constructions, and the large-scale production means a high level of CO₂ emissions. The company has resolved to reduce its emissions and improve the environmental labelling of its products.
“It is important that we take action both as an industry and as a company,” says Tom Kristensen, Boligbeton’s Managing Director.
One initiative is to replace the old heating systems with new heat pumps.
“For the sake of the environment, it makes sense to replace oil and gas with greener solutions such as heat pumps – and there are financial benefits”, explains Tom Kristensen.
“Compared to the old system, Boligbeton is set to reduce energy consumption by approximately 70 percent. The heat pumps will also result in improved circulation and a more comfortable indoor climate”, says Tom Nielsen, Sales Engineer at Solar Climate & Energy.
Solar is assisting Boligbeton with project design and product selection in its green transition. So far, the company has installed five new heat pump systems. They are also working on an idea for a solar cell park that will provide green energy for lighting and machinery.
