A 360° view of the project

Each project is looked at from every angle. Steen Bak, project manager at Verdo, adds:

“It’s important for us to take a 360° view of every project. We take a holistic approach and work closely with our customers. Lars Bjørnkær, operations manager at Kjellerup district heating facility, is innovative and knows what he wants. It’s a pleasure to work with somebody with that level of ambition. It’s our job to deliver the best possible solutions and to get everything to fall into place when delivering projects like this, and it’s therefore a big day when such a plant is finally commissioned.”
