Confirmation of RHI Compliance

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), is a government backed scheme designed to encourage the use of renewable technologies in building projects. The RHI will provide finance in the form of a tariff, which will be paid to the customer for up to 20 years in commercial and 7 years in domestic applications.

Maincor supply pre-insulated pipework which is manufactured in Denmark in ISO 9001 & 14001 premises by LOGSTOR. The OFGEM-administered RHI scheme requires pipework to be “properly insulated” in accordance with EN 15632 Parts 1 & 2. LOGSTOR pipework is manufactured in accordance with this requirement and pipework is marked at 1 meter intervals confirming that the European Norm is adhered too. OFGEM have recognised LOGSTOR Flextra pre-insulated Pipe as “properly insulated”.

Since Maincor supplied pre insulated pipework is “properly insulated”, the associated heat loss can be disregarded in the following circumstances:

For each individual external pipe that is 10m or less in length

Where the annual average heat loss in kWhth from all external pipe is less than 3% of the projected annual output of the plant in kWhth.
