Veolia (Trigen-Philadelphia) Heating Loop
Veolia (Trigen-Philadelphia) is the owner / operator of the Philadelphia District Heating loop. Veolia provides steam to its customers in Philadelphia as a public utility and bills based on meter readings. Since these customers depend on steam and don’t have their own boiler rooms, Powerhouse is called upon to provide temporary steam during repair outages. District heating has been in use in the U.S. since the late 1800s; therefore, regular maintenance to the system is of the utmost importance. When Veolia isolates a section of the loop for maintenance, Powerhouse provides total curbside solutions, from fuel to power to steam generation and full operation. This capability has helped avoid steam outages at such critical facilities as hospitals, government facilities, university campuses, hotels, office buildings and even restaurants. Powerhouse continues to work with Veolia in Philadelphia and other cities as well as with other district heating firms to keep their steam or hot water loops operating at peak efficiency without disruption.
