Veolia uses the latest pipe relining innovation to maintain district heating in Sheffield

Veolia used the latest pipe lining.

In a first for the UK, Veolia is using the latest carbon lining pipe technology for maintaining the integrity of the heat distribution system serving the buildings and homes connected to the 44km long Sheffield District Energy Network.  

By relining the pipes, with carbon fibre and epoxy resin sleeve, this innovative process removes the need to excavate large areas to reach pipe sections, which greatly lowers the need for disruptive roadworks.  The resulting reduction in civil engineering can cut the CO2 emissions of these maintenance operations by up to 80%. 

The inherent strength of carbon lining makes it self-supporting and is designed to completely take over the workload of the host pipe, supporting the weight of the system water, and maintaining the integrity of the system.
