In the South Harbour district in Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark, a new heating transmission line from the Aarhus Heat Plant to Sydhavnsgade is intended to support a major urban development and ensure security of supply to the city.
The neighbourhood of the city’s old coal-crane track is facing a continuous development that will make it Aarhus’ version of New York’s Skyline.
To make room for this urban development, which also includes new carparks and other construction, the district heating transmission line between the Aarhus Heat Plant and Sydhavnsgade will be rerouted, and dimensions will be increased from DN450 to DN600. The transmission line will be co-excavated parallel to the DN400 distribution line that will connect to the new business area.
By choosing a pre-insulated pipe system with optimized insulation in both transmission and distribution lines, the utility company AffaldVarme Aarhus, who is in charge of the project, ensures supply with a minimum of heat loss and optimal economy.
