Ørsted owns Asnæs Power Plant in Kalundborg, which produces steam, electricity and heat.
The steam is delivered to Novo Nordisk and Novozymes. In the plant itself, the steam is used to drive turbines which, with the help of big generators, produce electricity for the power grid.
The residual heat from that production is utilized as district heating for households and companies in Kalundborg. Ørsted also has a close cooperation with Kalundborg Refinery on the exchange of special water from flue gas condensate. In this way, the extraction and use of drinking water, of the basic or surface water from Lake Tissø is reduced. Ørsted plays a key role in Kalundborg Symbiosis. The newly constructed biomass-fired ASV6 block is an important part of the green transition.
