Working closely with BIR Nett AS, Envac was able to install the first phase of the system in 2007 and is currently extending the system in 2021. On the development’s full completion, Envac’s pneumatic waste collection system will automatically collect the waste of up to 30,000 apartments multiple times each day.
The City of Bergen has already won the National Energy Globe Award 2017 for its decision to install Envac, and more recently, the International Project of the Year Award at the World Congress on Municipal Engineering in Kansas, USA.
The three-phase development, of which Envac has been involved in the only two carried out to date, is set to continue over the coming years. Another collection station is going to be built in 2021 and will be in operation 2022.
