Flying high to follow the green energy pipe network this weekend
Sheffield District Energy operator, Veolia, is taking to the night sky this weekend (Friday 26th - Sunday 28th February 2021) to undertake an aerial drone survey of the Sheffield District Energy Network. The results will provide thermographic images of the underground pipework to assist with maintaining the District Energy Network.
All relevant authorities and stakeholders have granted permission for this work to be undertaken and the specialist drone operators have identified several safe Council, public and private spaces as take-off and landing sites for the drone to use while surveying the Network.

Notification of planned District Energy Network works - Charles Street
As part of a wider project to relocate a section of the District Energy Network pipeline, small areas of the road surface and pedestrian area on Charles Street will be dug up to check the location of other underground pipes and cables in the way. The holes will then be filled in.
The inspection works will happen during the day and will begin at 08.30 am on Monday 8st February 2021. We expect the works to be completed by 5 pm on Friday 26th February 2021.
We expect there to be some traffic restrictions during these works. Veolia’s engineers are working in close consultation with Sheffield City Council and surrounding properties to minimise disruption.
