Water Industry Award goes to Triangulum project in Stavanger – Stavanger’s Central Energy Plant awarded as first of its kind in Norway

Stavanger’s Central Energy Plant, part of the Lighthouse City’s Triangulum activities, recently won the Water Industry Award in Norway for its innovative solution. The award is handed out to projects with a high degree of complexity, solved by using a new and unique approach.

The energy plant transforms the city’s wastewater to energy, reducing the CO2 emission by 80 % – something that has never been done in Norway before. The new energy facility uses a renewable energy source to heat and cool three administrative buildings and the public swimming pool in the city centre.

Local coordinator in Stavanger, Gerd Seehuus, is happy for the acknowledgment and says it’s great that the City of Stavanger can be up front when it comes to developing sustainable and innovative solutions.

The award is handed out at Norway’s most important conference for people working with water and sewage, The Water Days.
