Lolland Municipality takes the lead in the fight against climate change, as a new district heating project has begun on West Lolland. The municipal’s ambitious climate plan is based on the current energy policy, which includes phasing out oil-fired boilers by 2030 and introducing 100% renewable energy in the electricity and heating area by 2035.

The goal of the project is to convert five oil villages to biomass. The five villages; Nørreballe, Østofte, Bandholm, Reersnæs, and Stokkemarke, are referred to as oil villages, which means that they use oil-fired boilers as their primary heating source. Henceforward, the villages will be supplied by a district heating distribution network with heat delivered from the straw-fired CHP Plant in Sakskøbing and from Maribo District Heating Utility’s new wood chip boiler plant. The plant in Maribo will supply both the city of Ma-ribo and the villages through a transmission line to Nørreballe. Bandholm and Reersnæs will be supplied through a pump station. The transmission line in Stokkemarke will be connected to the existing network, which today is supplied by a local straw-fired plant.

The solution brings with it a significant reduction in the climate impact, a more econo-mical solution, as well as a more efficient production of heat.

isoplus will do the take-off for the pre-insulated material from the construction drawings, prepare statics and alarm drawings, as well as produce, assemble and deliver the products in the production flow that fits with the project. For the 22-kilometer stretch, the choice has landed on single pipes in series 3 and double pipes in series 2, as this solution ensures the lowest possible heat loss with the most optimal economy.
