Improved maintenance of district heating pipes

There are many district heating networks in Europe that are anticipated to be close to their end of life. In order to estimate their remaining technical life, it is crucial to get sufficient information and facts about all parts of the piping systems in advance.

The main objective of this project has been to establish facts and tools, which could help us to obtain and predict present and future technical status of pre-insulated bonded district heating pipes in operation.
