Large Scale Solar Heating in Lillestroem Norway

The Danish tehnology of large scale solar water heating has found its way to Norway in combination with a large thermal storage tank and a wood chip plant integrating renewable energy and reducing electric heating.

Ramboll Energy has been commissioned with a solar energy project for Akershus Energi in Lillestrøm, Norway.

The solar heating plant was built in conjunction with Akershus Energy Park, which Ramboll also helped the client construct.

The plant is the largest solar heating plant in Norway.

Akershus Energy Park in Lillestrøm is one of Europe’s most modern and innovative district heating stations, operating also on woodchips and biogas.

With the solar heating plant, yet another renewable energy source will be introduced.

State-of-the-art renewable energy project 

Akershus Energy Park has a vision of becoming a leading R&D arena for renewable energy in general and for solar heating in particular. Through the technological width represented at Akershus Energy Park, the client also wishes to contribute to a constructive interaction between technology and community.

The solar panel area is 10,000 m2 and is connected to the rest of the energy park.

Ramboll prepared the technical specifications of the solar heating plant, assisted in the procurement process, designed the connection to existing systems, verified the energy output, managed the project and followed up on the contract in the construction period.

Sunmark delivered and mounted the solar panels.
