Viegand Maagøe assisted in making a big dairy fossil free
“Fossil-free Arla – helping the environment and saving millions.” That was the positive and green message about Arla’s dairy in Vimmerby in the fall of 2023.
The large dairy, with an extensive production of milk powder, bids farewell to the last drop of fossil oil at the beginning of 2024. This marks the culmination of a long and successful collaboration between the energy supplier Adven, Viegand Maagøe, and Arla.
It all began in 2019 when the dairy needed to find a new operator for its energy plant. A requirement for the new operator was to deliver fossil-free energy. Consequently, Adven reached out to Viegand Maagøe, which has been assisting in mapping and optimizing the energy processes at the Swedish dairy since 2010.

Viegand Maagøe has an in-depth understanding of energy optimization in the food industry, and it shines through in the solution, says project manager Johan Goike from Adven.
“From the beginning, we could sense dedication, and Viegand Maagøe’s consultants possess extensive experience and knowledge that enables them to identify potential energy savings. We have every reason to be satisfied, and this has contributed to establishing a partnership built on trust,” he adds.
