125 + 70 systems = well on the way to energy-friendly social housing

01-02-2011 | Nilan’s VP 18 Compact is chosen as the ventilation and heat recovery solution for Denmark’s largest low-energy social housing construction project. With a new order for 70 systems, a total of 195 have been earmarked for the project so far – and these are only the first figures in that equation.

Social housing of the future needs to be energy-friendly, and KAB, the largest social housing organisation in Denmark, leads the way of the sustainable development with Nilan’s VP 18 Compact as the heart of the homes built in this connection – with as many as 195.

With the project “AlmenBolig+” (SocialHousing+), KAB aims to provide a healthier indoor climate and a lower heating bill at a low rent. The Danish construction company Scandi Byg builds the homes, and so far 125 systems have been ordered for the first phase of the project in the Danish city Hvidovre. 70 more can be added to that number for the next phase in Køge.

650 homes with a healthy indoor climate and a low heating bill

In the next few year, Scandi Byg will build up to 650 homes for the project. By choosing VP 18 Compact as standard ventilation and heat recovery solution, all needs in terms of ventilation and heating – that is, heating of the home as well as sanitary hot water – are combined in one single solution. Also, our NilAIR solution has been chosen as the standard air distribution system.

Strong team ensured success in competitive tender process

KAB put the ”AlmenBolig+”-project out for EU competitive tender in 2009, and the project that Scandi Byg’s consortium presented was chosen as the best. In addition to Nilan, Scandi Byg’s consortium includes the architectural firm ONV Arkitekterne and the consulting engineering companies Bascon A/S og Ellehauge & Kildemoes.
