See for yourself how we turn water from a lake into water for the production (technical water) and treat wastewater from the production. At the Energy Central, you will see how Grundfos and Bjerringbro Heating Central exchange and store energy. At the Øst 1 factory, you can explore various energy and water projects using Grundfos Technologies.

Homegrown Electronics

Did you know that one of the world’s most advanced electronics factories lies right under your nose in Bjerringbro? Probably not. The electronic components for our intelligent pumps are made here rather than bought from an external supplier, as Grundfos has always been a company that prioritises keeping important technological skills in-house.

The tour will take you through Grundfos’ state-of-the-art production floor, where the intelligent motor controls for our energy efficient pumps are made. Grundfos is aiming for full traceability of all products, and the electronics factory is a key driver of this goal. You will have a chance to meet and discuss with both technicians, developers and production staff.
