As one of the most innovative water companies in Denmark, we feel obliged to support the water industry. We have extensive knowledge of the operation of various facilities, establishment of organisations, analysis, tendering, planning, project management, training and commissioning of facilities.
We would like to do our share towards ensuring innovation of the Danish water industry. By also taking a global perspective, we contribute knowledge and support for Danish exports and help set the global agenda for sustainable development.
The Municipality of Aarhus has a vision of making the city an even more attractive place to live through its climate adaptation projects, and the local water utility, Aarhus Vand, works closely together with the municipality to fulfill this vision. Together, they make rainwater a visible element in the form of rainwater lakes, rainwater beds […]
Aarhus Vand – the water utility servicing Denmark’s second-largest city – is full steam ahead with implementation of a digital transformation strategy which sets an ambitious direction that will accelerate and increase its focus on continued innovation of digital solutions and transformation of the utility’s business. Accessibility of data, information and knowledge which promotes sharing, […]
Aarhus Rewater, which will replace the existing Marselisborg wastewater treatment plant in 2028, will be a state-of-the-art treatment center and stand as a stunning landmark on the Aarhus harbour front. Upon completion, it is expected to be the world’s most sustainable and innovative wastewater treatment plant. In just a few years, Marselisborg wastewater treatment plant […]
Up to 10,000 households’ washing machines and toilets in the suburb Nye – near the city of Aarhus – will soon use rainwater instead of drinking water. This is estimated to cut water consumption by as much as 40 percent.
At Aaby and Marselisborg Wastewater Treatment Plants Aarhus Vand extract phosphorus from the wastewater and sell it as valuable fertiliser under the name PhosphorCare. In 2013, Aarhus Vand opened the first full scale demonstration plant in Denmark at Aaby Wastewater Treatment Plant to test the viability of renewable phosphate production in Denmark. Today the plant […]
Total energy renovation of the treatment plant at Egaa, just outside Aarhus, means that Aarhus Vand is setting new standards for developing treatment plants from energy guzzlers into energy producers. This has happened through entirely new technologies that exploit the green energy-production potentials in wastewater. The topping-out is a milestone in the technological development of […]
In recent years we in Aarhus Vand have entered into voluntary agreements with landowners regarding pesticide-free cultivation of the vulnerable areas. Through investments in afforestation we contribute to the plantation of new forests. In selected areas, we successfully run information campaigns together with the local waterworks and joint councils for the purpose of reducing the […]
In 2014, Leif Koch, DHI, and Ramböll partnered with the Taipei Office of the Trade Council of Denmark and the Taiwan Water Corporation for a pilot project to reduce water loss in Taiwan. These organizations sent a team of leakage engineers and operators to work at a test site on Chijin Island. With the rising […]
With the help of Danfoss drives, the Aarhus wastewater treatment plant in Denmark not only ensures clean water – it also produces more electricity and heating than it consumes. Water and wastewater facilities account for the largest consumption of electricity in most municipalities, typically 25-40% of the total energy use. In the Danish city of […]
On a global scale, less than half of all wastewater is collected and less than one fifth is treated. This has led to severe environmental degradation of many inland and sea waters around the world. This white paper provides lessons learned from Danish stakeholders within wastewater treatment.
Good water management can make cities healthier places to live, resilient towards climate change and more sustainable overall. Without proper sanitation, sewerage and clean water supply, there is no liveable city. This white paper features lessons learned from different Danish stakeholders within urban water management. It is meant to serve as a tool for inspiration for creating innovative water solutions, which contribute to smarter and more liveable cities.
25-50% of all distributed water globally is lost or never invoiced due to illegal connections, inaccurate billing systems, inaccurate metering, leakages, deteriorating infrastructure and wrong water pressure management etc. – or in short Non-Revenue Water (NRW). This white paper examines how water utilities can improve efficiency and meet future demand for water by reducing Non-Revenue Water.
Good rainwater management can make cities healthier places to live, resilient towards climate change and more sustainable overall. Population growth and urbanisation, floodings as well as more frequent and longer periods of droughts all encourage an optimised use of rainwater in cities. Traditionally speaking, climate adaptation seeks to lower the risks posed by the consequences of climate […]
