Progress highlights at Energetik Heat Network

We’ve seen great progress at the Energetik Heat Network site in Enfield over the last few months.

We have completed all mechanical plant installations within the energy centre, and have progressed the primary low temperature hot water (LTHW) pipework within the boiler hall and thermal stores.

The two 25m high, 6.6m diameter, 750,000 litre thermal stores have been subject to dosed water fill. One store has been hydrotested and we’ll soon begin the insulation process. Formation of the ground floor office area has been completed too, including the viewing deck, which will provide visitors and staff the opportunity to gain a birds-eye view of the boiler hall operation.

Externally, the primary support work for the mesh cladding has been progressed to all elevations and the mesh cladding has commenced to the thermal store enclosure. The vertical flues have been installed within the flue tower, along with the feature lighting which will illuminate the flues.

We have also completed the underground district heating works within the energy centre site, which is now available to connect to the future LTHW source.

Once fully complete, this scheme has the capacity to deliver low carbon heating and hot water to tens of thousands of homes across and beyond Enfield. One of the many developments to benefit from this very-low carbon heat supply will be the 82-hectare Meridian Water development comprising 10,000 new homes, workplaces and a railway station.
