Successful drilling Alkmaar Heat Network

18 April 2018

A.Hak is working on the construction of the Alkmaar Heat Network for Dutch client HVC. A.Hak Leidingbouw and the district heating experts of A.Hak Infranet region West join forces with the drilling specialists of A.Hak Drillcon for the construction of the heat transport pipelines. On Tuesday, April 17, a successful drilling was performed under the Westtangent in Heerhugowaard.

The Alkmaar Heat Network transports the residual heat from the bio-energy plant in Alkmaar to residential areas and industrial estates in Alkmaar, Langedijk, Heerhugowaard and Heiloo. Houses and businesses are thus provided with heat and hot water. The cooled water goes back to HVC where it is re-heated. Therefore, the installation of heat transfer pipelines always involves two pipes: the supply and return pipe. The Alkmaar network is special because it does not only involve connections for new buildings, as is usually the case, but also connects existing buildings to the district heating network.

The construction of district heating networks is one of the areas in which A.Hak makes an important contribution to the sustainability of the energy network.
