“In Tórshavn, a boiler on the incineration plant was due for replacement, along with all its valves and instruments. It was a technically very complex project, in which we assisted with the overall functionality. The new boiler was built in advance, so the framework was already in place when we came on to provide our particular processual understanding, aiming to make the system manageable before handover to the users,” says Asger Schade.
“The technical walkthrough is vital. If you’re supposed to operate a new switchboard, you need to know how it is constructed. This is why we go through all relevant equipment bit by bit and side by side with future operators. To ensure that they know how to maintain, calibrate and shut the system down. It is a mutual endeavour, in which we need to understand the needs of our client and to describe all technical elements in a user-friendly way. We are very precise about this, because quality is something we create together with our clients,” explains Asger Schade.
In the Tórshavn project, around 200 wires were required to integrate the new boiler. LBP Engineering have spent roughly 720 hours on just the commissioning of the new systems. It has been a successful project. So much so, that Tórshavn Incineration Plant have asked LBP to examine whether the entire plant can be constructed in a fashion similar to that around the new boiler. Simultaneously, the neighbouring town of Leirvík has expressed interest in an equivalent method for district heating.
