We have the ambition to be part of the future’s energy supply

We are aware of our responsibility and work ourselves to the bone every day to run an environmentally responsible refinery. We are already one of the most energy efficient refineries in the world, but just like the rest of society, we see a future where fossil fuels are replaced by sustainable alternatives.

We want to be a part of the solution. You can be a part of it too. We have the facilities, capacity, and the human qualifications necessary to play a key part in the energy system of the future, as well as the green transition of heavy-duty transport and the aircraft sector.

Hydrogen will become the main ingredient in the energy production of the future, and we handle enormous amounts of it daily. When technology has matured then we have facilities we can expand upon.

We take care of each other – both at work and outside of work

We are proud to be a workplace where people stick around – sometimes for decades. As a result, there is plenty of experience to draw upon when you start working with us. You will also be working with people that have chosen to spend a large part of their working lives to make this workplace a nice place to be.

Our community lives on outside of work – even between the colleagues that do not see each other every day. We can boast about having a staff association with more than 60 years of history.

Do you prefer kayaking, crossfit or wine tastings? We do it all, and we cannot wait to have you along.

People invest in each other in a special way here, and it rubs off. If the mood is off, we quickly turn the frown upside down.

Worth commuting for

We know there has to be balance in the day-to-day, and we know that flexible working conditions is the key to that. It is something Rasmus enjoys as he commutes from Odense to Kalundborg. But if you do not already live in the city, you will surely have the will to do so. We have beautiful nature in the back yard, a safe environment for children to grow up in and the houses do not cost an arm and a leg.
