In connection with the construction of a major seawater facility in Copenhagen’s fashionable harbour area, Kvæsthusmolen, Hofor Fjernkøling A/S has established a new 900 mm intake pipeline for seawater.

In cooperation with the contractor, MJ Eriksson A/S, Uponor Infra has installed a 3000 mm manhole, with 900 mm valves controlling cooling water under the spectacular staircase called Kissing Stairs.

Using water from Copenhagen Harbor for cooling, Uponor Infra has contributed to exploit natural resources sustainably. We have supplied 360Project Services and has contributed to achieve a number of advantages for Copenhagen Harbour:

  • Sustainable infrastructure
  • Up to 70% CO2 reduction
  • Financial savings up to 40%
