Ørsted Reactor

Engineering the future of waste recycling


Worldwide researchers suppose, that the amount of waste will be increasing over the coming years. And since there is an increasing concern, as to do with this problem, Ørsted has created the world’s first bio plant handling unsorted waste, such as general household waste - this is what Ørsted calls REnescience.

And here’s a little about how the technology works:

Unsorted waste is put into the installation plant. And using enzymes, recycled water and anaerobic digestion, REnescience divides subsequently the waste into 3 groups.

1. Recycling metal and plastic

2. Non degradable plastic. This can perhaps be used as fuel insalareation plant.

3. And fluid, made from the organic part of the waste. This particular fluid is turned into biogas.

Ørsted has ordered two smaller reactors to serve as optimization units for the larger REnescience plant in Northwich UK. The reactors are mechanically and electrically engineered in a collaboration between DMRI Research Institute at Teknologisk Institut and elkas Automation.

Michael Johansen, Electrical Engineer SW was the software engineer on this project. Including PLC programming and the SCADA system.

Introducing EPLAN Pro Panel

A few years ago, we used E-plan 5 for documenting our electrical panels. At that time, E-plan was a DOS based drawing program.

The following update integrated macros, this was called P8, a new and improved windows based program.


Today, we are introducing EPLAN Pro Panel, an engineering software for designing and constructing electrical control panels, switchboards and flexible power distribution systems in 3D.

The virtual panel designs include detailed wire descriptions that enable us to subcontract the production of wire harnesses. We receive the wire kits back with correct color coding, ferrules and tags in both ends of the wire. The virtual drawing, shows the wire installation from component to component. This brilliant program recognizes the “depth”, because of the 3D effect.

All this saves a large amount of time and resources.


The layouts made in EPLAN Pro Panel, are sent directly to our CNC machine (Steinhauer Modcenter), that makes all the cut-outs/holes in the panel, and on the mounting plate.


EPLAN Pro Panel version number: 2.7
Additional modules: Process Wiring & Production NC/DXF

Fishing for Success

The commercial fishing industry is one of the biggest contributors to the Icelandic economy and has subsequently experienced large influx of more and more advanced technology measures within the last decade. Skaginn is one of the leading innovators in modernizing fishing vessels in the competitive landscape that is the fishing industry in Iceland.

When food businesses are dealing with the freshest produce in their daily operations, it is of crucial importance to address the challenges within quality control in an immediate manner. In Skaginn's case that would be the cooling of the freshly caught fish to maintain a high level of quality, so once the product is moving up the value chain is still in the best condition possible. Skaginn has developed cooling methods, which both are more economically viable and efficient. For instance, the company has abandoned traditional cooling methods, such as cooling freshly caught fish with ice, instead, the product is cooled in saltwater kept below freezing temperatures.

In order to maintain these new solutions in Skaginn's fishing vessels, elkas was hired to develop the programming of their tub cranes, which transport the caught fish for further processing such as skinning and slicing. The tub cranes were programmed with the help of Schneider Electric's LMC 078 and four Lexium 32 drives, all put together in Schneider Electric's SoMachine platform. Take a look at the video below or contact our engineer Peter Rossen for further information about our expertise within motion programming.

Industrial automation in Pharmaceuticals

Elkas commented on industrial automation in the production of pharmaceutical products in a Børsen post


When it comes to industrial automation, there are only a few other places than the pharmaceutical industry, that has a bigger focus on production safety. This affects the total chain of suppliers such as machinery manufacturers, system integrators and developers. One of these are elkas Automation A/S.


‘’Life science and Pharma are some of the industries, where automation solutions doesn't utilize the newest products and technologies because of the great focus on production robustness and qualified supportsays Lead Electrical Engineer, Morten Jørgensen.


‘’Undesirable stops has major consequences, and the end products at the Pharmaceutical companies are expensive. It has a big impact if a product have been through an almost complete production process only to be discarded. This is why you will typically wait implementing technology, until it has properly matured.’’


According to Morten Jørgensen, newer technologies are being applied  “end of line” where Product packing occur. Here, new and stricter requirements on serialization and traceability, will be enforced from the beginning of 2019.

These demands will require implementation of new technologies within machine-vision, scanning, printing, and industrial IT solutions in general.

In addition there is the GAMP (Good Automation Manufacturing Practices). These practices  must be complied with when developing automated manufacturing plants for pharmaceutical production. GAMP is the international guidelines for quality and safety in the production of pharmaceutical products.  

The way the pharmaceutical companies enforce the procedures in the GAMP life cycle is continually updated.  

It is required to have the necessary knowledge about these demands, to deliver complete solutions for the pharma industry.

Milk powder for the asian markets - processed by elkas

In Oviedo, northwestern Spain close to the Atlantic coast, you can find one of the most competitive dairy production plants in Europe. Continuous economic growth in the Capsa Food's Asturiana brand, revealed a need for a new milk powder processing plant with greater capacity. Capsa has large exports to the East Asian markets, where high quality EU produced Lecithin unit Spain - screen in Spanishmilk powder has experienced significant growth in demand.

In line with the recent growth trends it can be noted that lecithin has become a core constituent within the production of high quality milk powder. Lecithin is usually sprayed upon the processed milk powder in the final stages of the production process and gives the product dissolving abilities once it gets liquid contact. German food processing giant GEA has been selected to build the respective lecithin units for Capsa Food's newly developed plant.

Our expertise within the food processing industry made elkas a natural partner to develop electrical process solutions for Capsa Food and GEA. elkas was selected to automate and optimize production and process in lecithin application in the new plant. The process is controlled by a Siemens PLC ET200SP-CPU and has a TP1500 Comfort HMI on top of this configuration. As well, elkas chose to interface Danfoss FC302 drives through profinet and provide a customer interface through profinet I-Device technology.

Ørsted, Avedøreværket

November 2017: Ørsted, Avedøreværket


JE-elkas was assigned the prestigious project of implementing new Chargers in the existing cabinet housings.

Due to the size of the chargers, it was found more reasonable to reuse the

existing cabinets and change all the internal parts only. This means a little more time on site, but makes it more

convenient in regards to getting the parts in and out of the room.


Chargers: 2 pcs 220 Vdc/1000 A and 2 pcs 24 Vdc/1600 A

The PLC that ferments your yoghurt - FH Scandinox BPU unit

FH Scandinox/elkas BPU unit

In the countryside of western Jutland, FH Scandinox is in the midst of building a new prototype fermentation plant. The food processing engineering company consulted elkas in order to build a top notch OEM product, scalable to the respective end users. Food processing and especially fermenting processes can be a delicate matter in the engineering phase, where a lot of parameters come into play and need to be reviewed and addressed.

Siemens PLCs are the main powerhouse in this case, which were programmed by elkas in TIA portal. The characteristics of this prototype plant can be sought in the the great amount of different options this one-size-fits-all product has to offer. The customer FH Scandinox can choose from different modular setups, like extra cooling cycles. It should be noted here that the temperature is regulated with electrical heating and ice water in order to obtain fast and efficient results.
