Cool smith with a lot more
Tommy Thomsen is completely cool about being in the innermost recesses and highest peaks of the boilers. He has been an installer with B&W Vølund for 20 years and is used to most things. Perhaps this is why he has the energy to also be a master brewer, marathon runner, alpinist and the proprietor of a clothing store.
Keeping an overview in the Fun House
Numerous steel stairways, gangways, galleries and small hatches into the boiler interior. The resonating sound from tools and ventilation working overtime. Intense heat from furnace line 11 in operation only a few metres away. For the uninitiated, the maintenance shutdown of furnace line 12 at the Fynsværket plant is somewhat reminiscent of the "Fun House" ride at the Tivoli theme park.
The independent smith
A smith with a touch of granite. It is clear that there is a strong and independent ethos at work in B&W Vølund's construction. Tommy Bager enjoys challenges and finding solutions. His journey to work originates from Bornholm, where his family has a farm, machine pool and holiday park.
Misunderstood waste beliefs
There are numerous misunderstandings in the debate as to how to best handle waste. Professor Thomas Højlund Christensen is attempting to correct some of these misunderstandings using life cycle assessments of reuse and energy from waste combustion, amongst other things.
