Danfoss partners with URBAN RIGGERTM to bring sustainable student accommodation to European harbors.

URBAN RIGGERTM is a powerful example of how we can push for innovative answers to our urban challenges.

It proves that we can do more with less to the benefit of our community; an ambition shared by Danfoss.

Engineering solutions enabling innovative architecture
Whether it is about new ways to use space, bolder shapes or harmonizing with new environments, architecture has constantly pushed the boundaries of ambition; and engineering has made it possible. While the URBAN RIGGER concept impresses with its clever solution to utilize up-cycled containers to create floating student residences, the ambition to create a hyper-efficient community is putting engineering technologies to the test. To help meet these ambitions, Danfoss technologies are playing a key role in generating heating and cooling, while ensuring internal climate comfort and keeping energy use to a minimum.
