Sludge incineration plant "Lynetten" is located on the Eastern waterfront of Copenhagen's inner harbor. The location makes the plant clearly visible for the people who are visiting the city´s tourist attractions along the western waterfront, and particularly for those who are entering the harbor on a yacht or cruise ship. Lynetten cleanses waste water from Copenhagen and partially produces energy, and it is one of the most energy efficient power plants of this type in the world.

The client wished that the beauty of Lynetten's industrial character would be communicated and showcased by means of light. Ramboll was commissioned to do the lighting design. The main requirements defined by the client were to highlight Lynetten's unique architectural features and ensure low energy consumption. 

Ramboll came up with a concept which sets the visual focus on five big cylinder-shaped silos, painted in different colours and placed inside the building, directly behind the façade glazing. The luminaires illuminating the silos are arranged so that the light renders the silos' cylindrical shapes. With such a concept, where the light is radiated from inside the building, the transparency of the architecture is enhanced. The façade is no longer a visual barrier at night but a transparent envelope that reveals the building's interior and function. Additionally, the new chimney, which is an integral part of the plant, is also illuminated as a vertical accent in the space. 

The project was completed exclusively with state-of-art LED technology; hence, the client received a low energy consumption light installation emphasizing Lynetten's environmental-friendly identity. 
With the new lighting scheme Lynetten stands "glowing" in the night as a new urban landmark in Copenhagen's inner harbor.

The project was won the Danish lighting award.
