The new Heimdal heating plant was put into operation in Trondheim city in Sør-Trøndelag County in 2007 and increased the annual proportion of waste energy from 200 to 350 GWh. Total annual district heating production is 530 GWh.

The main source of heating is residual waste, and the proportion of such waste in district heating production represents almost 70 percent. The waste comes from all over the Middle Norway, from Salt Mountain in the north to Dovre Mountain in the south, and each year the plant can burn more than 200,000 tons of waste.

The facility is subject to strict environmental standards. Each of the three furnaces has special treatment systems for removing contaminated particles and gas.
