Amager Bakke - Ski slope on the roof

16. October 2012

A world-class waste-to-energy facility to be build at the harbour in Copenhagen

The City Council of Copenhagen has decided to proceed with the project Amager Bakke. The project will be a world-class flagship facility from an environmental, energy efficiency and architectural point of view. The Amager Bakke will replace Amagerforbrænding's existing facility, which for more than 40 years has recovered energy from waste produced in and around Copenhagen. The construction will start in spring 2013 and the construction is planned to be finished by 2016. 

This €470 million project will be one of the largest waste-to-energy facilities in Northern Europe to be built in one step. The engineering company Ramboll’s waste-to-energy team has been working for Amagerforbrænding on this project since 2009 with comprehensive technical and environmental assessments and procurement of the total electro-mechanical process plant.

The project is known by many people all over the world for being the waste-to-energy facility with a “ski slope” on the roof – an idea created by the Danish architect group BIG.
