District heating pipeline with water from Lake Geneva in La Tour-de-Peilz (CH)

Lake Geneva offers heating energy for its local communities. By means of heat pumps it can be put to good use. The pipelines installed for transporting the water from the lake consist of ductile iron pipe systems which are perfect for the job: they are corrosion-protected inside and out and their large hydraulic cross-section means that operational costs are kept low. Electrically insulating thrust resistance systems prevent the risk of damage due to stray currents and they are easy and safe to install. In short, the ductile iron pipe system meets all the conditions for transporting low-temperature district heating.
