The Company has accumulated huge experience in the construction and reconstruction of off-site utilities and water supply systems, sewerage systems, heat supply systems, and hot water supply systems.
Taking into account the fact that most of Kyiv district heating networks have been operating for more that 30 years and their worn-out state makes difficult the capital’s normal life and development, reconstruction and laying of district heating networks and utilities are one of the priority business areas of SVS-Dnipro PJSC.
Works related to laying of new and replacement of the existing heat supply pipelines are carried out by using the trenchless laying and pipes pre-insulated with rigid polyurethane foam.
The advantages of this heat insulation method compared to the traditional use of mineral or slag wool are indisputable. In case of underground laying, thanks to the impermeable electrically insulating polyethylene sheath laid over polyurethane, the steel pipe is well protected against soil water and external chemical and electrochemical corrosion which extends significantly their service life.
Pre-insulated pipes are not affected by corrosion sources such as ground currents, and this is particularly important when laying district heating networks in the construction sites of industrial enterprises or in large cities with developed electric transport.
Foam polyurethane pre-insulated pipes have the NORDIC type emergency alarm system built in the heat insulation which makes it possible to detect the place of damage with the no more than 1% margin of error and make digging works directly in the emergency section place.
