Roskilde Forbrænding was designed by the Dutch architect, Erick van Egeraat, who won the architectural competition after a call for tenders. Many describe the project as one of the most state-of-the-art supply projects in recent European history. The many new functions at the incinerator plant are coordinated from the high-tech control room which has been laid out and designed by Gottlieb Paludan Architects from Copenhagen.
Prestigious projects of this calibre of course require a partner who is able to deliver a product and the expertise that match the state-of-the-art aspect and the high-tech vision.
The height of the structure of Roskilde Forbrænding is 98 metres which required a partner with the capacity to deliver steel structures of this magnitude. At the same time, the supplier must have the expertise in guiding and instructing in the correct use of hot-dip galvanized steel structures for the architect-designed prestigious project.
DOT has delivered 600 tonnes of load-bearing, corrosion-protected elements and 110 tonnes of railings to protect the building from corrosion in future ensuring that Roskilde Forbrænding will be able to continue supplying electricity to more than 65,000 households and heating to 40,000 households.
In sharp contrast with ordinary incinerator plants and utilities, Roskilde Forbrænding has been a prestigious project which in collaboration with DOS has ensured Roskilde Forbrænding a corrosion-protected building. The finished project is an iconic landmark which is able to withstand harsh weathering and meet the requirements and standards expected of this class of building projects.
