openhagen has set itself the goal of be-
coming climate neutral by 2025. To en-
sure that the goal is within reach, waste
will be converted to electricity and dis-
trict heating in the future.
To achieve the ambitious goal and the visionary con-
struction of the “waste-to-energy facilities”, around 30,000
m³ of concrete were necessary, all casted completely with
At the end of April 2014, 4,500 m² of rented formwork
from PASCHAL Danmark A/S’s LOGO system were provided
for a smooth construction process.
Climate neutral by 2025
The waste incineration plant is to recycle the entire
urban population’s waste from 2017 and simultaneously

households. This should also raise the awareness of the in-
habitants for environmental protection and resource con-

tion with a recreational area.
The plan is to design the roof of the facilities so that
it can be used all year round as an artificial ski slope. At a
height of 85 metres, the facilities will look like an artificial
mountain upon completion and they will also be used as a

provided by PASCHAL Danmark A/S to
ensure a smooth construction process.
