One-Point Entry matches Danish and Belgian actors

A media visit focused on sustainable energy generated Belgian interest in Danish district heating solutions and visiting delegations to Greater Copenhagen followed. The returning delegations are the result of One-Point Entry’s targeted efforts to tailor programs and identify relevant partners for incoming international delegations. This sustained dialogue and matchmaking has resulted in new partnerships within waste-to-energy and district heating.

The fourth visit from Antwerpen came in September 2016 in the pursuit of inspiration for introducing district heating in Belgium. The delegation was taken to Kara/Noveren’s innovative district heating power plant in Roskilde Kommune, renowned for its advanced technology and cutting-edge architecture, and introduced to a host of public actors and private companies.

"Meeting these delegations has been a great platform for Rambøll. In more than one case it has resulted in large business partnerships in new markets."

As a result, the entire Danish district heating industry is well positioned to play a central role in Belgium’s development and application of district heating solutions.

The engineering and consultancy firm Rambøll later signed an agreement for a combined heat and power waste-to-energy facility as technical advisor and conceptual design consultant with the Belgian inter-municipal organization for waste disposal ISVAG. The WtE tender also presented an opportunity for the architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) to submit a proposal.
