Netherlands: Construction of Trias Westland heat network is progressing well

There is a lot of work going on in the construction of the Trias Westland heating network. Kilometers of steel heat pipes are laid in the Westland, often in straight lines and by means of guided drilling. Yet it occurs that a straight pipe is planned and still an obstacle is encountered. How do you ensure more installation flexibility in a mostly full subsurface?

In the past 6 months, the Trias Westland construction team (Trias, A.Hak and Rotterdam engineering) have developed a number of techniques in which the heat pipes are bent cold by using a bending machine. By bending the heat pipes themselves within the construction team, they achieve flexibility (material delivery times are increasing), shorter lead times and financial benefits. This technique has also been applied successfully in practice, namely during the construction on the Kasteelweg.
