In response to the government’s drive to decarbonise the nation’s heating supplies, British manufacturer CPV Ltd has unveiled a brand new pre-insulated pipe system for use in district heating applications.
In a quest for the lowest-possible construction costs, developers and operators of district heating networks are missing out on significant levels of operational savings –both monetary and carbon-related.
A leading manufacturer of district heating pipe systems has highlighted its serious concern at the growing sector’s apparent lack of awareness in the effects that thermal expansion has on pre-insulated pipe networks. If ignored, the company is warning that systems will fail and this will risk damaging the faith placed in the resurgent technology by DECC’s heat strategy.
CPV Limited - one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of pre-insulated pipe systems for district heating applications - is close to completing a brand new training centre that is set to boost the number of qualified installers of district heating pipe systems in the UK.
A director of CPV Ltd, a UK manufacturer of district heating pipe systems – has called for an end to the way in which the Renewables Obligation is incentivising electricity producers to use biomass fuels in inefficient, conventional power stations – effectively squandering the waste heat produced.
A director of the UK’s longest-established manufacturer of pre-insulated pipe systems used for district heating has called for an industry-wide system of quality standards to be established. He has warned that, without it, the rapid growth that the sector is experiencing may see a repeat of the same mistakes made during the last boom of the 1970s and 80s that led to catastrophic system failures.
