Eneco inspecting heat network from the air

Published: 8 February 2018Modified: 8 February 2018

The Eneco energy company is investigating the quality of the heat distribution network. The company is using a small propeller airplane in the week of 7 to 14 February to take photos of The Hague’s city district heating network.

The airplane is taking shots from the air using an infrared camera. Eneco will use the photos to measure the differences in temperature between the heating pipes and the area on the ground. The energy company can see from the light and dark grey tones in the photo precisely where heat is being lost. The noise from the airplane might be annoying to some residents. You can view the airplane’s flying route on the  website of Eneco.
