20141203 6 st vindkraftverk TrellEco1The use of energy and natural resources is a significant environmental aspect, and the port has begun a fairly extensive project for more efficient resource utilization. In this area there are clear savings targets set for the coming years.

Energy projects

Area Description Saving
Lighting Replacement of luminaires, transition to LED lighting, lighting control at quays/surfaces. At least 900,000 kWh per year, equivalent to around 82 tonnes of CO2 per year
Modernization of heat exchangers, heat pumps, ventilation with recycling systems, timers. Lower temperatures, eg in storage areas. Transition to district heating in several buildings. Energy efficiency calculation is made for estimated outcome of each action in case they can not be measured separately.
Solar energy A navigation lighthouse and a navigation mark on the west pier head is supplied with energy from the sun via ten solar panels. Improved energy mix
Wind power Six vertical 19 m high wind turbines each with a maximum power of 20 kW, were completed in 2014. They have very low noise levels.
