Another gas plant in Denmark by C.F. Møller
October 10, 2013

C.F. Møller Gas compressor station EgtvedThe new gas plant has just recently been officially opened by a posse of dignitaries, including Denmark's Minister for Climate, Energy and Building, Martin Lidegaard. C.F. Møller has designed the plant as an architectural feature in the open landscape. The form of the buildings was also specially chosen in order to achieve optimum safety conditions at the plant.
"We began by asking ourselves a question: Can we push the boundaries for how we see technical plants? Can we create a gas plant in dialogue with the landscape and yet focus on the energy supply infrastructure, on which we all depend?" says Julian Weyer, architect and partner at C.F. Møller.
A technical site is normally swaddled in greenery to prevent it from becoming an eyesore in the natural environment. And here the opposite is true.
The new technical plant emerges from the landscape as a grassy embankment. The remainder of the building appears almost to hover over the mound and is clad with rust-coloured Corten steel plating.
Natural gas supplies from the North Sea are dwindling. To ensure a regular and safe energy supply in the future, Denmark has to be able to receive gas from continental Europe. Energinet.dk has therefore constructed 94 kilometres of "gas motorway" from Egtved to Germany. This extension of the fossil gas system may well be a decisive step on the road to a green energy system, which is projected by 2050 to use only renewable energy.
