Fastflow Group to deliver innovative low carbon district heating network system

Fastflow Group, a subsidiary of United Living, has been awarded a multi-million-pound contract to build the pipeline loop of a new-build district heating system in Scotland.

The district heating system will provide low carbon heating to an advanced technology industrial cluster known as the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District (AMIDS), supporting Renfrewshire councils plans to be carbon neutral by 2030.

The delivery of a low carbon district heating network is considered a vital element of the AMIDS site, with a vision to become internationally recognised for advanced manufacturing, leading innovation and research.

The district heating pipeline loop has a linear length of 1.9km and will be installed in the same open-cut trench containing twin large diameter High-Density Polyethylene pipes.

Fastflow Group has operated in Scotland for more than ten years delivering water projects directly for Scottish Water and Tier 1 contractors.

The low carbon project is scheduled to commence in October 2021, with a completion date of April 2022.

Benn Cottrell, Managing Director, Fastflow Group | United Living Infrastructure Services, said: “We’re pleased to have been chosen for this exciting project, bringing our engineering expertise to assist in the delivery of low-carbon solutions.

“Taking on this vital installation with its specific challenges is a project our team is looking forward to, helping to drive a low carbon economy, support a green recovery and help deliver the UK’s clean growth strategy”.
