“I’ve spent my first year at FairHeat on the operations side of the company where we monitor and make performance improvements to existing heat networks.

I’ve been heavily involved in various heat network performance audits, project management of HIU retrofit and HIU servicing programmes, and helped develop a water quality testing regime for multiple sites to provide suitable protection against corrosion and bacterial growth.

I’ve particularly enjoyed the project management roles and have developed strong relationships with clients and contractors whilst on site. 

The graduate scheme has exposed me to a wide variety of work and provided me with opportunities to learn and develop technical understanding of heat network operation and maintenance. 

Over my next 6 months I will be investigating the feasibility of real-time monitoring of water quality KPIs with the aim of significantly reducing maintenance costs for network operators.”
