Gas Distribution Networks
Service pipe development:
o Investigate BAE improvements and alternative resin deposition methods
o Investigate service to mains connections
o Identify in-process inspection methods for service pipes
Mains pipe development:
o Investigate joint filling methods
o Investigate PRISM pipe to PE pipe connections
o Identify in process inspection methods for main pipes
Satisfactory evidence that conceptual solutions have been identified and modelled (with physical proofs of concept developed where appropriate) to enable such solutions to be taken forward into the broader, ongoing, PRISM/BAE programme of work, leading to a technically, commercially, and operationally viable pipe replacement system.
The MTC will produce specific deliverables, for review and approval by Cadent, to include 3D CAD models supported by existing technologies to illustrate the concepts put forward.
