prince-charles-horsensHorsens and ECOmove are looking forward to a world-class event when their Royal Highnesses, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla pay an official visit to Denmark from the 24th to the 27th of March.


Horsens and ECOmove are looking forward to a once-in-a-lifetime royal visit by the end of March when Their Royal Highnesses, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, pay an official visit to Denmark.

The royal couple’s tour includes a visit to Vitus Bering Innovation Park where they will be introduced to ECOmove’s e-car QBEAK and to VIA University College that is conducting leading research into geothermal heating technologies.

The royal couple will take a closer look at the prototypes of two of ECOmove’s sustainable e-cars, and this makes the innovative company very happy and proud.

– This is indeed a fantastic opportunity for us to spread the message to a wider audience, says CEO of ECOmove, Mogens Løkke, and calls the visit a bit of a scoop.

– We have never promoted ourselves much, but this is a great chance for us to meet a lot of people who haven’t heard about us before, he says. We are so proud to be involved in this event, says Mogens Løkke, who is impressed with those who have managed to get Horsens on the royal agenda.

Horsens hosting the EU Presidency

The background for the distinguished royal British visit is that Horsens is hosting the EU Presidency in April, May and June. In addition, the Prince and Duchess have specifically asked to hear more about the transformation of Horsens from prison town to experience city.

However, the exact times of the visit in Horsens are not official yet and will not be published until a few days in advance. Mayor Jan Trøjborg and Rector of VIA, Harald Mikkelsen, will be welcoming the royal guests.

This visit is a recognition of our work with innovative green technologies. We know that the Prince of Wales is very interested in this subject. We also look forward to introducing him to our campus and to some of our talented international students, says Managing Director of Campus Horsens, Konstantin Lassitiotakis.
