VCS Denmark is one of the largest water and wastewater utilities in Denmark – and a frontrunner in the water sector.
We offer consultancy services and customized training programmes at both strategic and practical levels within our fields of operation – including:
– all based on our more than 160 years of experience with operating a large, Danish water company. We call it practical water knowledge.
The City of Odense is situated inland and the local wastewater utility, VCS Denmark, is operating under stringent requirements for nutrient reduction at its treatment facilities due to a sensitive recipient. In spite of this, the utility’s largest wastewater treatment plant — with a capacity of 410,000 person equivalents (PE) — has achieved a degree […]
We are happy to introduce WaterRehab; a unique tool for making pipe rehabilitation planning smoother and much more efficient. The pipeline network typically counts for up to 70% of the total volume of assets in water utilities. Therefore, even a small improvement of the rehabilitation strategy will result in huge savings in the distribution system. […]
In the city of Odense – Denmark’s third largest urban area and hometown of world famous fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen – the water utility VCS Denmark has successfully reduced water loss in the pipeline network to only 5 % (2019). At 0.60, the utility’s Infrastructure Leakage Index (ILI) is among the best in the […]
The global trends of urbanisation, population growth and increased welfare challenge cities all over the world. This white paper shares methods of how water utilities can improve water quality, increase resource efficiency and ensure uninterrupted service to customers.
Sustainable solutions are no longer a choice for most societies: they’re a must. Especially in our cities. Inside this White Paper you can find case examples of how to rethink urban development and gain greater value from investments in the city’s blue infrastructure.
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.
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.
In recent years, the Danish Technological Institute (DTI) has been a principal partner in several R&D projects focusing on characterisation and removal of microplastics and microrubber in wastewater treatment plant influent/effluent, industrial wastewater and stormwater, respectively.
