Monday, 5 February, 2018

Danfoss A/S and OE3i ApS announced that they will enter into a strategic cooperation under which Danfoss and OE3i will work together to accelerate digitalization within the district energy segment.

Our world is getting increasingly connected and going forward digitalization and IoT demands will drive and accelerate the integration between advanced components and district heating stations manufactured by Danfoss and software optimization solutions by OE3i.

By combining Danfoss’ deep application and product know-how within district energy with leading software solutions, including heat and power consumption forecast and peak load and flow temperature optimization from OE3i aimed at helping customers optimize district heating networks, Danfoss and OE3i will be a strong partner for customers in need of robust solutions to help solve key pain points and digitalize operation. 

"It is not often that we see such powerful innovation in an area in need for a new approach, and we are looking forward to collaborate with OE3i. We will use our combined strengths and synergies to offer district heating customers innovative solutions which will help them quickly address known pain points while at the same time making it possible to speed up the integration of IoT and data to further optimize network and energy production”, says Anton Koller, President, Danfoss District Energy Division.

“As we utilize the scale and resources from an established market leader like Danfoss, we will be able to move forward much faster than what would have been possible on our own. Together, we will use our combined strengths to make an impact in the market and provide key benefits to this customer segment, Nicolai Hagen Johansen, Managing Director OE3i”.

Both companies will continue to operate independently.
