Danfoss is in the process of establishing a huge solar cell park close to headquarters in Nordborg, Denmark.

The facility will be capable of producing power equal to the annual consumption of 400 single-family houses, and has a total capacity of 2.1 MW. It is set to be operational before the turn of the year.

The establishment of the solar cell park in Nordborg is part of Danfoss’ target to reduce its CO2 emissions by 25 % and to increase the use of renewable energy by 25 % by 2025. As Danfoss helps others save energy and reduce CO2 emissions, the company is also working to reduce its own carbon footprint.

The system in Nordborg will be made up of 9,300 solar panels to be connected to 130 Danfoss inverters. The inverters convert the direct current generated by the solar panels into alternating current, which can then be transferred to the power network. The solar panels will cover 30,000 square meters, which corresponds to between five and six soccer pitches. The field next to headquarters is currently being cleared and prepared for the installation of the system.
