Danfoss Drives for its contribution to Aarhus Water Project
Danfoss Drives’ has supplied 290 VSDs to the world’s first energy-neutral water and wastewater management system. The energy used for wastewater transport, water treatment and distribution in 2016 was 7.2 million kWh. The energy and heat produced by using gas from anaerobic sludge digestion over the same period was 7.4 million kWh, so the project now creates an energy surplus.
