SILHORKO-EUROWATER has followed the district heating development through the years, and has recently posted a video on its website, which in less than 3 minutes shows the recommendations on water treatment from the Danish District Heating Association through actual implementation by a Danish district heating company. “It is an efficient way to illustrate how a district heating plant has benefited from following the new recommendations by using new technology that removes oxygen in the water without use of chemicals and thereby help preventing corrosion of their piping network”, says Jørn Urup Nielsen and emphasizes the company’s interest in demonstrating the Danish learnings for others to be inspired by, because “problems with corrosion make the lifespan of the pipes significantly shorter, results in leakages and loss of water which again cost disruptions of supply as well as money for the district heating company and eventually its customers”. Through three different cases of different water treatment plant sizes, in three geographical areas, it is emphasized how SILHORKO-EUROWATER takes its experience from Denmark to their employees internationally and so continues the education of and support to energy and district heating companies around Europe.
Specialized in water treatment solutions with absolutely minimum content of chemicals, and focusing on water and energy saving technology, SILHORKO-EUROWATER is a leading Danish/European manufacturer who has been involved in the district heating and energy sector for decades. It is an independent, privately held company with almost 400 highly qualified employees represented internationally in most European countries – either through full scale sales & service, subsidiary companies or through local, experienced distributors that all are water treatment specialists with local service facilities. Over its long experience in the sector, the company has obtained valuable competences in designing water treatment solutions that protect the district heating plant/network assets against corrosion and thus achieving longest possible life cycles. “Having our design and production located in Denmark means we of course are influenced by the local environment, i.e. the legislation and the intense development in the district heating sector. Therefore, we are continuously designing solutions that meet the ever developing Danish requirements, which can be quite demanding”, explains Jørn Urup Nielsen, Group Sales Director at the company. Jørn Urup Nielsen also refers to the Danish experiences within district heating as something authorities in other countries could benefit from. “We have translated the most recent recommendations about optimum water treatment solutions, prepared by the Danish District Heating Association, to English and German, and put them on our website. More than 100 consultants and other stakeholders within the international district heating sector have downloaded this material only during January 2017, so there is obviously an interest to acquire the experience we have”.
