Heat

The way we generate and distribute energy and heat is changing. Hydrogen, green gas, heat pumps, privately generated solar and wind energy and heat networks require continuous attention for reliable energy and heat supply in a safe and clean environment.

Energy and heat distribution companies, energy suppliers, installers, engineering firms, housing associations, end users and regulators can rely on Kiwa for in-depth knowledge about heat technology. In addition, asset managers, technicians, implementers and policymakers can attend heat technology training courses at Kiwa.

  • You probably collect large quantities of data about your network, including, for example, inspection reports for stations, pipeline leakage detection details, breakdown records or other information.

  • Damage that occurs in a heat energy distribution network can soon lead to substantial costs. These costs are not only associated with repairing the network but also with indirect damage suffered by users who are unable to draw off the heat energy they require.

  • Benchmarking is one of the possibilities for improving the quality of your organisation and/or processes. If you wish to achieve the objectives that you have set, for example, for your asset management, you will have to translate them into specific, measurable, objective and consistent indicators.

  • If you have, or are developing, a new product in the area of heat energy distribution, such as delivery sets or heat pump systems, you obviously want to be sure that this product is as good as possible and that it complies with all the relevant standards.

  • The added value of Risk Based Asset Management (e.g. according to PAS55 or NTA 8120) can be broken down into a number of internal and external benefits.

  • Problems in pipelines are often caused by the joints. Kiwa Technology has built up vast experience. For example, we have used our expertise in the area of plastic welding (of PE, PEX, PA, PP etc.) and other jointing techniques for years to support our consultancy regarding research and development projects.

  • The quality of (city) heating networks depends to a significant extent on the quality of the connections in the pipelines. Leaks that allow water ingress, which often occur in sleeve connections, can lead to degradation of the insulation with all the resulting effects on thermal insulation performance

  • The resistance against permeation of gases and water through pipe walls and other separation components such as films, is for many practical applications a very important property. In this area, Kiwa Technology has gained vast knowledge and experience.
