District heating 3.0
The best way to prepare for tomorrow? Pre-fabricate today! We developed the innovative concept of a fully pre-insulated piping network on coil, including readily housing connections. The first pilot project in the smart city of Hengelo set a record that would quickly become the standard: the connection an entire street, including trenching, laying, welding and closing – usually a matter of motnhs – all in just a single day. That means residents could return to their houses before sunset.
Plug and Play
Part of the trick lies in minimizing the amount of connections needed on site. As 60-70% of the connections can be made in the factory, installation time and cost are drastically reduced, allowing control of tight schedules. The other part of the trick lies in the flexibility and homogeneity of Flexalen, further boosting the ease and speed of installation.
On top of that, our revolutionary Flexalink connection technology ensures headache-free performance as connections, usually the most risky parts of a network, are made on a 100% clean and controlled factory floor, readily tested for performance. That means risk, maintenance and overhead costs are also kept to a minimum.
