Hello all from Denmark!
I’m currently at the Grundfos guest house — known as Frisholt — in the beautiful countryside town of Kastrup.
Earlier Tuesday, I visited the Crowne Plaza Towers in Cophenhagen. Grundfos TPE in-line pumps with built-in frequency converters are a major part of the overall ATES (Aquafer Thermal Energy Storage) system that make the hotel one of the first to meet the European Union’s Green Building Program. The hotel also won the Skal International EcoTourism award for being “the greenist hotel in the world.”
The Crowne Plaza consumes just 51 kWh per square meter for heating, cooling, domestic hot water and ventilation. The hotel opened in 2009 and has an estimated payback of six to seven years.
The Grundfos pumps help the hotel deliver different variations of flow needs as the hotel has numerous different demands.
For more on the Crown Plaza application, be sure to check out the November edition of pme.
A couple of other notes from my trip:
- Seeing as this is my first-ever trip to Europe, I thought there would be so much acclimating I would have to adjust to.
- Also, either I am impervious to jet lag or I just feel into the right sleep pattern. I feel great and have adjusted well.
- One thing I’m not impervious to is a person on a bike. Even at 32 years old, you need a reminder to look both ways before you cross a street. Since I didn’t, I deserved to be knocked to the ground by an incredibly nice and apologetic (when she wasn’t even close to be in the wrong) young lady. So, no matter how old you are remember to look both ways before crossing a street.
