HRH The Crown Prince of Denmark handed over The Diploma of the Danish Export Association and His Royal Highness Prince Henrik’s Medal of Honour to Brian Sørensen, CEO of PowerSense.
The honour, which is awarded annually, is presented to Danish companies located outside Denmark, in recognition of outstanding efforts in promoting and marketing Danish products and services abroad.
Ulrich Ritsing, Chairman of The Danish Export Association said at the ceremony;

rely on, combining high tech environmental friendly solutions with real products that are manufactured in this case in Denmark, exported and creating jobs and profit for Denmark.”
PowerSense’s turnover in Australia has tripled over the past 3 years and Australia/New Zealand is now the largest market for PowerSense. The turnover is expected to reach around 20 mill AUD $ in 2011 with a continued growth the coming years.
