After successfully working with the City of Vancouver since 2009 and the successful completion of a multi-year phased district energy project with the City of Vancouver last year, Division 15 has been awarded two more projects this year.
The two projects, one district energy distribution piping project, and one Energy Transfer Station project, which will be happening in parallel, will span until 2018, and will be completed in phases. The projects will expand the City of Vancouver Neighbourhood Energy Utility service in South East False Creek, to nine new developments in the area.
The distribution piping system project consists of the installation of 600mm of underground pre-insulated thin-walled pipes, as well as parkade piping running to each building’s mechanical room. The Energy Transfer Station (ETS) project consists of the fabrication of nine energy transfer stations, providing heat to new residential and institutional developments. This project will see the fabrication of Division 15’s first skid-mounted ETS system, which will be fabricated at Division 15’s yard and shipped as a complete package for installation in each building. With the help of Building Information Modelling and the expertise of our welder Chad Noble, this new fabrication process will allow Division 15 to be at the forefront of evolving methodologies in the district energy industry.
