Visit Arkil A/S to hear their experience

On Wednesday May 3rd, 2023, Compacttilt visited Herman Schou Roloff, the workshop manager for Arkil A/S, who was in the process of installing district heating in Galten. Arkil A/S was the first company to purchase a CTR10 from Compacttilt, and over 2,500 working hours later, the machine is still running.
