Just south of Copenhagen in Karise Denmark, Permatopia, a new daring visionary combination of residences and farm set in a scenic surrounding is currently being built. Here 90 terraced houses, a farm and utilities are arising – designed according to the “Permaculture” principles: renewable energy, circular economy and self-sufficiency.


The entire area is heated with geothermal heat. The geothermal heat pump will be powered by a wind turbine and connected to a heat accumulator so the inhabitants can enjoy hot tap water each and every moment of the year.


The pre-insulated piping solution by Thermaflex is installed to transport both heating water as well as the domestic hot water. The system is Cradle to Cradle Certified™, meaning no materials used in the production are harmful for the environment and the valuable raw materials can easily be harnessed for future use.


Future residents such as Kaj Hansen value the choice of circular materials. “It is important not to use all the limited resources on our planet, and think of the future generations to come.”


Plug-and-play Flexalink house connections were delivered to the project in numbered packages matching house numbers for swift and easy deployment. Flexalen requires fewer welds on-site, less excavation is needed and it is a light weight system.


According to Steven Zoega, from installer John Jensen VVS: “It’s flexible, easy, and everything is tailor-made and pre-assembled all together. It makes our job much easier and we save a lot of time. This creates for us a better working environment, less back injuries and it is faster to install.”

With these robust and easily applicable solutions, Thermaflex and John Jensen VVS demonstrate that we collectively can make the transition to sustainable energy, while at the same time assuring optimal levels of comfort at lower energy bills!
