District heating and cooling networks
Pipeline engineering

Pipeline engineering is the process of designing, constructing and maintaining pipeline systems.

The goal of pipeline engineering is to ensure that the pipeline system is safe, reliable and efficient.

At Gruner, our pipeline engineers, specialized in designing district heating networks, district cooling networks as well as steam pipe networks, always take into account a variety of factors when designing a pipeline system of any kind, including the type of pipeline, the terrain, the climate and the local infrastructure.

In addition, our pipeline engineers are familiar with a variety of construction techniques and are able to determine the best possible route for the pipeline. Once the pipeline or network is constructed, our engineers then supervise  the testing and monitor the system to ensure that it is operating correctly.

A well-designed pipeline system otherwise know as an urban district heating system (or indeed an urban district cooling system) can greatly increase the efficiency of transportation of heat energy and help to reduce heating costs (or indeed cooling costs). When designing a pipeline system, it is important to consult with a qualified pipeline engineer to ensure that the system meets all your needs.
