Producing surplus energy and using the resources in wastewater
The plant will be the world’s most resource-efficient wastewater treatment plant, making unprecedented use of wastewater resources and converting them into new materials, products and energy. It will be for the benefit of the environment, citizens and society.
Circular economy flagship
The project will be a flagship for the circular economy in Aarhus Vand and will pave the way for the water company to be energy andCO2-neutral by 2030. Envidan is realizing this ambition together with sub-consultants KWR Water Research Institute, DHI and Royal HaskoningDHV Nederland B.V.
This pleases Morten Fjerbæk, Business Developer at Envidan, who says: “We are of course extremely proud that we, together with our Dutch sub-consultants, have been appointed as Aarhus Water’s process consultant on this assignment. Our employees are driven by professionalism and personal development, and the fact that we will be a central part of the largest and most innovative treatment plant project in recent Danish history for the next many years gives Envidan a unique opportunity to offer our employees just that.”
Envidan is responsible for the design of the overall process plant
The task as process advisor was put out to tender in an innovation partnership, and the choice was based on a prior six-month innovation process with Aarhus Vand. Claus Møller Pedersen, Director of Business Development at Aarhus Vand, says about the assignment:
Following a tender process, Aarhus ReWater has selected Henning Larsen for architectural consultancy and Aarsleff as turnkey contractor. The construction of Aarhus ReWater is scheduled to run until 2029, when the plant is expected to be operational. The plant is then expected to be continuously expanded until 2050, when the capacity will reach the equivalent of the wastewater discharge of 600,000 people.
