Working in Greenland

Two of our fitters have been on a rather different task in the autumn. They were going to Greenland to make HVAC insulation under the pavilions that will house Nuuk’s new kindergartens, and it was not easy.

The pavilions stand on posts on the rocky ground, and therefore the work took place underneath the buildings themselves. The low working height under the pavilions, travel restrictions and the freight of materials from Denmark required a cordly project planning in Denmark, but they managed to get the project safely into port.

To accommodate the somewhat different working environment, we had extra thick knee pads made that could handle the rough surface. The fitters also had particularly low stools and had to move around between tasks during the day for a few days because the height of the lowest place was as low as 120 cm.

Now the two new kindergartens are ready to welcome Nuuk’s youngest citizens, and we look back on a well-executed task that placed great demands on both our project managers and the two fitters.
