Amager Resource Center – Waste-to-energy plant with recreational qualities

Peikko Deutschland GmbH, 34513 Waldeck, Germany

The (ARC) will be a role model in many ways. The new landmark will merge the industrial area on the island of Amager with the urban struc- ture and society of the neighbouring city. Copenhagen’s state of the art waste-to-energy plant will not only be one of the best performing European plants in terms of energy production, waste treatment capacity and environmental efficiency, but also in terms of visuality and local acceptance. It combines innovative technology, recreational activity and integration to society by creative architecture, and is consequently a great example of how a power plant can be welcome to people’s backyards. Thus, the architects of the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) succeed in creating a new class of power plant.
