Flexenergy Pipe Technology Specified for NHS Orkney Hospital

A new £64m hospital and healthcare facility being built on Orkney will include latest technology pipework that is sustainable and highly energy efficient.

Glenrothes-based pipe specialists Flexenegy provided 200 metres of pre-insulated pipe to carry heating and boosted cold water between the hospital’s newly-built energy centre and the main building. The Flexalen pipe is highly thermal-efficient, fully recyclable and, being made of polybutylene, will not corrode, unlike traditional pipe materials.

The hospital has been designed to put people first and make a positive contribution to the environment, local community and economy; once complete, island residents will no longer have to travel outside of Orkney for routine care.
