The second phase of Stoke-On-Trent's heat network began this week when civic and business leaders from the UK city, and students from Stoke on Trent College's Urban Heat Academy, attended a ground-breaking ceremony to mark the beginning of the latest 1.4 km installation of flow and return pipework.
The district heating network is led by Stoke-on-Trent City Council, and the latest £1.9 million phase follows on from pipes being laid under Leek Road in Stoke earlier this year.
Sustainable energy specialist Vital Energi, based in the UK, is carrying out this second phase of the work which will take thirty weeks to complete.
In addition to providing Stoke-on-Trent businesses and homes with cleaner, greener energy, it will also provide young engineers with a valuable opportunity to learn the latest industry skills.
