Who is Herning Vand?
»Every day we work to ensure our customers clean and tasty drinking water. We also collect and purify their wastewater before we return it to the water cycle. We do this with respect towards our customers, partners, and the society.”
This is Herning Vand’s core task, and every day nearly 70 employees work to fulfill this. Since 1907 the city of Herning has received water from a water works, and today we own and run three water works (Østre, Nordre and Vestre) which deliver water to approximately 18.000 customers. The wastewater from all Herning Municipality is purified at one of our 11 wastewater treatment plants of which Herning Renseanlæg at Ålykkevej 5 in Herning is the largest. This address also hosts our administration and plan & project department.
Since 2010, we have been an independent company owned by Herning Municipality. The company must be self-supporting which means that Herning Vand are not allowed to profit from the rates and fees charged by the customers. Any profit must be used the following years on lower rates.
We are a local company which plays an active role in the municipality’s development because we work and act locally. But we also seek regional, national, and international cooperation to make technical and environment-conscious solutions which are useful and ensure that we leave no bill to our children and grandchildren.
