The first Long Line heating cable project was implemented in Estonia, 2017
At the beginning of 2017, Comfort Heat, together with Enefit Solutions’ subsidiary of Enefit, which specializes in industrial projects, launched a project for the transportation of volatile liquids from production to the tanks with a total pipe length of 3185 meters. The Long Line heating cable technology, chosen by Comfort Heat was perfectly suited to implement the technical requirements of this project, facilitating operating conditions at high altitudes. In December 2017, the Long Line heating cable project was successfully implemented and the installation of pipe and tank heating cables at the Enefit 280 shale oil plant in Narva, Estonia was completed.
