Elmodan Elektro is located in Copenhagen and Næstved, Denmark. The company specializes in pumps, generators and power tools, and is known for providing service beyond expected.
Three months ago Anders Stenderup Frandsen took over the steering wheel and became the director of Elmodan when owner Lars Ingemann retired after 22 years in the company. Anders has worked at Elmodan for 12 years and knows the company’s DNA. It’s never easy to jump in after a champion, but Anders tells us he’s both humbled and excited for the the start of this new adventure.
“Elmodan Elektro is a small supplier in Denmark. Even though the company is small, it’s standing on three solid feet; pumps, generators and power tools. The company consist of eight people. What we don’t have in people, we have in versatility and knowledge – with a reputation for delivering fast and reliable service.”
Elmodan is a true survivor with over 100 years in the business. It’s no wonder why they were selected as suppliers for Denmark’s largest infrastructure project.
The Shortcut to Europe
The Fehmarnbelt tunnel will reduce travel time and strengthen links between Scandinavia and Central Europe. It’s part of a greener traffic corridor in Europe that will boost transport by electric trains. The project covers the construction of an 18km rail and road tunnel and 89 tunnel elements – all transported by boat and lowered into the sea.
“A standard element is 217 meters long and weighs 73.500 tonnes. With the cut-and-cover method, these massive elements get lowered into the sea with care and precision. After the tubes are covered, we connect the sections of the pipes and pump out any remaining water. The Fehmarnbelt tunnel will be completed in 2029, and we are proud to be part of it.”
Anders tells us Elmodan supplies their entire product portfolio to the Fehmarnbelt project: pumps, generators, lighting and power tools. He knows that having the experience they have makes them an easy pick.
“It’s a huge international project, with contractors from all over Europe. We’ve been part of similar projects with the same method and principles in Stockholm and Gøteborg. They can’t compare in size, but we still have experience and references, making us a highly trusted and reliable supply partner for subcontractors. “
