IFTech Limited and the wider international IFTech Group offer a unique combination of world leading knowledge and capability in all aspects of ground connected thermal engineering and a practical delivery of services in the UK construction market.
Our expertise includes all types of medium and large-scale geothermal systems, delivering low cost, low carbon heating and cooling for a wide range of applications.
We have unique experience and expertise in Underground Thermal Energy Strorage (UTES), the most efficient of all geothermal systems.
We are able to use our experience and knowledge of UK hydrogeology to provide a rapid, low cost preliminary assessment and cost/carbon model.
Where the desktop study indicates a likely benefit for the owner, we have a fast-response team ready to carry out a full investigation including test borehole where required.
We have been engaged with the Environment Agency over many years, and have an excellent understanding of the issues that are of concern for them, including long-term sustainability of both open and closed loop systems. Our strong relationships bring benefits to our customers.
Our design capabilities are second to none, calling upon the capability and international experience of the IFTech Group who have completed over 400 projects in the last 5 years. Our design division is led by Aart Snijders, one of the world's leading experts in Underground Thermal Energy Storage.
IFTech have a unique capability in drilling through our association with Haitjema, the leading Dutch contractor with over 100 years experience in both open and closed loop boreholes and 25 years in the field of geothermal drilling. Boreholes are made either directly by Haitjema rigs or by our UK drilling partners, depending on the technology requirement.
IFTech have recognised the key importance of the heat pump at the heart of the system, and have worked with some of the world's leading manufacturers to develop machines that can optimise system performance over the life cycle. We have also used the feedback from over 100 completed and operational systems in the IFTech Group to optimise simple but effective controls systems.
We embrace the benefits of off-site fabrication in terms of quality, cost and safety as well as programme, and have therefore set up facilities to assemble skid-mounted plant and controls tailored to the project need.
While we are able to offer any of the above services as independent contracts, our preferred method of delivery is a complete ‘turnkey’ service allowing us to collaborate closely with our project partners throughout to deliver best value for all.
The ultimate purpose of an IFTech system is to deliver improved outcomes in terms of cost and carbon over the life cycle of the asset. The experience of the IFTech group demonstrates that best results in use are obtained through professional aftercare and system optimisation. We offer a seamless transition from commissioning to operation, and work closely with the asset operation and maintenance team to provide a specialist service that fits within the overall FM activity.
