- to get the solar cells to provide power to the Limfjordstunnelen we save both money and energy - and we do it in a way that is relatively simple to install. It is a good example of the climate-friendly solutions, which must be to promote this green transition, I am working as transport minister, he says.
the Danish road directorate expects that the plants will be in operation in the early summer of this year, and when they are ready, will the solar cells generate 125.000 kWh. The flow will be used as a supplement to drive tunnelens electrical installations f.ex. fans, lighting, and trafiktavler.
- It will happen in a closed circuit, where the power from the solar cells to be channelled directly into tunnelens installations and consumed with the same thing, say fagkoordinator Rasmus Bang from the Danish road directorate.
Overall, the new solution save the Danish road directorate for a cost for the purchase of electricity on the expected dkk 250,000. on the year, and the tunnel will be powered in part by sustainable energy. Limfjordstunnelens plant use are also the most power when the sun is highest, which is another strength of the installation.
the Danish road directorate expects that the plant will be in operation in the early summer of 2020.
