On Saturday 20 August, Crossbridge Energy welcomes you to the refinery in Fredericia from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for an open house.
With this, the refinery gives Fredericians, neighbors and other interested parties the opportunity to look behind the fence, into a world where 35 percent of the liquid fuel that keeps the wheels turning in Denmark is produced on a daily basis.
A large number of Crossbridge Energy’s business partners will also come and show more about both the special equipment and the projects of a more climate-friendly nature that are being worked on inside the 150 football pitch-sized refinery area.
Collaborators from Fredericia’s elite sport and Fredericia Musical Theater will also stop by and give visitors a “first-hand experience”.
As a supplier of more than 35 percent of the Danish consumption of liquid fuels, the refinery is a large workplace with 250 employees and a number of subcontractors. They work around the clock, and every day more than 170 tankers come to pick up liquid fuel and take it to filling stations.
In addition to producing liquid fuels, which keep the wheels running and airplanes in the air, the excess heat from the refinery is used for district heating in the entire Triangle area. In fact, more than 25 percent of the district heating in the Triangle area is surplus heat from refinery production. This corresponds to the annual consumption of more than 23,000 ordinary households.
The refinery was commissioned on 19 August 1966. On 1 July 2021, Crossbridge Energy took over the business, which has now set its sights on becoming a climate-neutral refinery by 2035 at the latest. We will be happy to tell you all this and more on 20 August.
