Alongside efficient insulation techniques for the transport pipes, the ‘thermal prestressing’ method will also be used on the pipes for the first time. This is a technique that involves preheating the pipes when they are laid and allows installation to be carried out flexibly, while guaranteeing quality and a reduced risk of leaks over the long term.
Combined with the approach adopted by BESIX Infra for the work on the sewers and roads, this technique will help to minimise disruption while the project is in progress. BESIX Infra has extensive experience of keeping businesses accessible when it is performing work on sewers. How this can be achieved when constructing a heat network is less obvious. The thermal prestressing method is a solution that allows us to follow the phases of the work on the sewage network, ensuring that businesses remain accessible during this work too.
