Portmeirion District Heating

Portmeirion is a picturesque, remote location which was developed between 1925 and 1975 in the Italian style of a Mediterranean village. As part of a £1m biomass investment at the popular tourist attraction, Mibec supplied over 3km of REHAU’s RAUTHERMEX pre-insulated polymer pipework.



Optimising Heating at a Large Farm

J C & MW Suckley is a large farm located in Shropshire, renowned for cultivating crops, including potatoes, carrots, and corn, among others. With a focus on sustainable practices and operational efficiency, the farm worked with Mibec to optimise its heating infrastructure to support its diverse agricultural activities using REHAU RAUVITHERM and REHAU's underfloor heating products.

District Heating at a Historic Military Base

To successfully provide district heating to a remote military base, we undertook the successful specification and delivery of REHAU RAUTHERMEX pre-insulated pipework and special pre-insulated underground valves. The base is in a remote location and is accessible via a service tunnel that can only be used by small vehicles.



21st Century Heating in a Period Home with Microflex

For this period home renovation, the existing oil boiler is being replaced with a new ground source heat pump, pre-insulated pipe work and heat interface units. Microflex Duo supplied by Mibec was installed to provide primary heating and sanitary hot water.



Supplying Eight Poultry Sheds with Heat

Mibec has completed the specification and delivery of REHAU RAUVITHERM underground pipework and underfloor heating pipework to eight purpose-built poultry sheds. The sheds rely on ground-source heat pumps and a biomass boiler for heat.



Ground Source Array for Luxury Holiday Lodges

Mibec supplied 2800m of ground collector PE pipe to the project which was then made into array loops and sunk into their pond to be used in connection with their ground source heat pump. The pipe array absorbs ambient heat from underground. The heat pump increases the water temperature, which is then supplied to a large calorifier before being supplied to the luxury holiday lodges, which also have solar PV and panel heating.



Pre-Insulated Pipe Kits for Hot Tub Installations

Mibec has recently undertaken the successful specification and delivery of our pre-insulated pipe for both domestic and commercial hot tub installations. Hot tubs are increasingly popular at holiday parks, small self-catering holiday lets as well as in average gardens as people seek to make the most of their home environment.
