Project description

The Wattens to Innsbruck heat transport pipeline was launched in 2010 with the goal of transporting industrial waste heat from businesses along the transport pipeline to the city of Innsbruck and the surrounding municipalities.

A particular challenge in this case was the identification and implementation of routes in inner-city areas, taking into account public and private transport, commercial and neighbouring residents' needs, and coordination with other pipeline owners.

AEP Planung und Beratung GmbH was responsible for all engineering services, from the feasibility study, submission and detailed planning, tendering of civil engineering and pipe construction work to local construction supervision and commissioning. In addition, special structures such as bridge suspensions for Inn crossings, pipe jacking for railways and trams or pressure booster stations were planned and implemented in detail. AEP has also verified the pipe statics of special pipe routing solutions.
