Andusia Supply ARC with Their First Bulk Shipping Contract

Andusia is pleased to announce they have secured a contract with combined heat and power plant, ARC (Amager Ressourcecenter), at their new facility “Copenhill” in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Copenhill provides electricity and district heating to the greater Copenhagen area and is designed to change between operating modes depending on the local heat demand and power price.  In 2018 Copenhill produced enough district heat to supply 72,000 households and enough electricity to supply 30,000 households. As one of two plants in the capital, it plays a major role in Copenhagen’s ambitions of being zero carbon by 2025.

The waste incinerator has won a string of accolades for Danish architecture firm, Bjarke Ingels Grou (BIG), who topped the plant with an urban ski resort. Called ‘Copenhill’, the ski slope opened to the public in October of this year.

The contract will see Andusia supply ARC with 15,000tpa of plastic reduced RDF, also known as Low Carbon Waste or LCW, from November this year and will not only be Andusia’s first export contract to Denmark but also their first bulk shipping contract to date. Bulk shipping RDF means more tonnes can be transported and as such it is more cost effective and environmentally sustainable than other methods.
