Nedschroef is becoming Greener
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing our generation. Nedschroef Langeskov ApS have started taking several initiatives to become greener by reducing natural gas consumptions.
The debate in recent years regarding CO2 reduction, rising energy prices and the government’s decision on subsidising energy-saving investments resulted in Nedschroef entering into an agreement with energy consultants from DONG Energy in June 2011 regarding a survey of our collective use of electricity and natural gas. The aim of the survey was to establish possible investments that could offer a long-term cost-effective solution for reducing our energy consumption. The energy report was submitted in April 2012 and clearly showed that energy conservation is good for both the environment and the economy. The report contained three initiatives for natural gas and eight for electricity, but it was obvious that the greatest investments and savings were to be found in natural gas. So far, 3,500 m² of roof surfaces have been re-insulated in connection with new roofing, 420 m of hot water pipes have been insulated, leakage loss in compressed air systems has been repaired and tests are being carried out on motion sensors at the steel warehouse. The largest investment will be the new ventilation system with heat recovery. This will result in an expected 30-35 % reduction in natural gas consumption. The installation date of the system has not yet been decided on.
