University of Edinburgh CHP, George Square

20th October 2022

Durotan were contracted by Crownhouse Engineering Services to supply and install pre-insulated steel heating and chilled water pipes including excavation and reinstatement of trenches in the cobbled roads around George Square in the centre of Edinburgh.

The 250mm diameter pre-insulated steel pipe which links the new CHP plant and cooling station to University buildings were installed in a busy area during an exam period with minimum noise and disruption. The project was successfully completed within budget in a narrow time window to accommodate the activities of the Edinburgh Festival which take place annually in George Square.
