1.       Development of G23 –
Develop a G23 document to help facilitate a rigorous approach to evaluation of blended gas detection equipment and requirements for field trials
2.       Operational Field Trial –
The evaluation exercise will seek to establish the performance of the new equipment to ensure accuracy, fitness for purpose, ease of use and durability. The instruments will be enabled with oxygen and CO sensors and the effectiveness of this functionality will be evaluated in conjunction with the blended gas sensors.
The work outlined above will seek to :
• Remove the requirement for logistical constraints for gas detection on blended gas networks.
• Enable the adoption of future-proof equipment within GDN operations, facilitating the transition to a low-carbon future.
• Stimulate the gas detection market to develop further equipment that is hydrogen-ready, ensuring a competitive market environment to the benefit of consumers.
