Three companies in Northwest Jutland will focus on recycling materials when investing in new green energy projects to solve the world’s climate challenges.


Struer Municipality’s Entrepreneurial Company of the Year, Bærebyg, which has made a business out of recycling materials from demolition, joins forces with Hvidberg A/S, specialists in demolition, and energy developer Skovgaard Energy to jointly take on the task of becoming more sustainable when establishing new green solutions.


Specifically, the three companies have entered into an agreement where new buildings, viewing towers in recreational areas of energy parks or access roads or the like will be built from recycled materials whenever possible.


“We work with the green energy solutions of the future, where we think synergies across the board. For example, we increase plant and animal life through our projects, which of course must also be sustainable in terms of our use of materials,” says Niels Erik Madsen, CEO of Skovgaard Energy.


He is pleased with the close collaboration with the Northwest Jutland companies, Hvidberg and Bærebyg, who are the perfect match for the job.


Planning is key

Bærebyg, which was named Entrepreneur of the Year in Struer Municipality in 2023, is also excited about the new collaboration.


“We are pleased that sustainability is being considered in the important green transition in Northwest Jutland, which requires major investments. Also when it comes to materials. With this collaboration, we hope to become a pioneering area – also in this field,” says CEO Keld Riis from Bærebyg.


The agreement also means that any demolition or removal of old roads, houses to be removed, etc. in future energy project areas will be recycled. This way, both recycled materials are used in new projects – and removed materials are reused.


“At Hvidberg, with our many years of experience in the field, we are ready for this exciting collaboration. A large part of the task is planning so that the right materials are demolished and can be used immediately afterwards elsewhere,” says Flemming Hvidbjerg, CEO of Hvidberg A/S.


Specifically, the first result of the agreement will be the removal and reuse of an old building near Ramme, where the world’s first dynamic ammonia plant is being built.
