A future-proof network

Local and district heating and cooling networks typically serve a few buildings, a complete neighbourhood or entire city districts. Hot and cold water transportation imposes very high demands on the underground distribution pipes and their thermal insulation capabilities.

Energy distribution with DHC Networks

The construction or renovation of district heating and cooling networks demands expertise and skill. Time and space are often limited during the installation work. Moreover, the project should not disturb other construction processes and/or everyday life in the surrounding area.

Insulated piping system for DHDC

Important factors for DHC networks are:

  • Engineered for perfection
  • Fast & professional installation
  • Optimal material durability
  • Network integrity
  • Smart operation
  • Low cost of ownership

We help you realise a future-proof network with pre-insulated polymeric pipes, be it a new scheme, renovation or expansion of an existing network.

Off-site prefabrication

The Flexalen pre-insulated pipe system offers a wide range of lightweight and flexible prefabrication options. Project-specific network sections are manufactured and tested in an ISO 14001-controlled factory environment. The result is the fastest possible installation and the most reliable network.

  • Straightforward on-site connections
  • Less labour and handling on site
  • Control of project objectives and planning
  • Minimal disturbance of the environment
  • Extremely fast to deploy
