FAABORG HEAT AND POWER PLANT


The Faaborg heat and power plant is located in an open landscape with Faaborg’s historic city centre as a backdrop.

The plant has a strict formal symmetry, built up around two identical gas engine systems and the dominating accumulator tank untraditionally placed in the middle of the composition.

In between the accumulator tank and the four surrounding building volumes, a light-filled and airy central space collects all of the departments and functions under one roof, giving optimal internal contact and access.

The facades are of light-colored masonry block, developed especially for the project. The masonry speaks to the typical materials of the historic merchant town and the careful detailing gives the plant a robust appearance.
