  • Using Alternative Methods in Greenland - Qaqortoq, Greenland - Case Study

    In 2012, Leif Koch A/S had the honor of performing leakage detection as well as being witness to the repairing process. At the time, Nukissiorfiit Qaqortoq lost 5-7 m3 of water each day on their district heating plant. Unfortunately, nature of the pipes made it impossible to find the leaks without the use of alternative methods, which is why the supply company decided to contact Leif Koch A/S. ...
