Today marked a historic moment for Kyoto Group at Norbis Park, Denmark, where Aalborg Forsyning, esteemed partners, and distinguished guests came together to witness the inaugural ceremony of their revolutionary Heatcube.

Among the esteemed attendees were Lasse Frimand Jensen, the Mayor of Aalborg Municipality; Eivind Reiten, Chairman of Kyoto Group; Camilla Nilsson, CEO of Kyoto Group; key management figures from Aalborg Forsyning; Kristine Kopperud Timberlid, Director of Denmark at Innovation Norway; and Katja Christina Nordgaard, The Norwegian ambassador to Denmark, who ceremoniously cut the ribbon with great enthusiasm.
