Environmentally sustainable water technology for a blue planet

With its years of experience and team of highly qualified water treatment experts, BWT – Best Water Technology has made a lasting contribution to the sustainable, eco-friendly consumption of drinking water in the city of Copenhagen.

BWT is one of the world’s leading water technology companies. It offers the latest products, technologies, and services in all areas of water treatment, from drinking water to water used in pharmaceutical environments, heating systems, and swimming pools – always with an emphasis on sustainability and the responsible use of resources.

The Danish capital Copenhagen has 33 water fountains and 60 public drinking water dispensers. By reducing the consumption of water from plastic bottles, the drinking water dispensers are responsible for a dramatic reduction of CO2 emissions and so constitute an important contribution to the protection of the environment. All the fountains and water dispensers require regular maintenance. In the case of the dispensers, maintaining high standards of hygiene is crucial to the provision of healthy drinking water – a task the City of Copenhagen assigned to BWT.

The company’s long experience in the operation and maintenance of water facilities – as well as its highly-skilled workforce – were key factors in the City’s decision, and BWT began work on the fountain at Copenhagen’s Tycho Brahe Planetarium just a day after the contract was signed. The fountain is made up of three sections weighing a total of 3.5 tons, and special air cushions were needed to raise it to the surface and pull it ashore.
