The proposed project will review of the existing styles of pipe supports in use across the UK gas National Transmission System (NTS) and determine concepts for trial to remove the existing manual handling issues and allow for inspection without the need to damage/break out the associated concrete plinths. The subsequent design would also eliminate the inherent corrosion risk with existing materials.

The project objective is to develop a suitable alternative design of pipe support for use on the NTS.

The project should identify options for alternative designs and materials for trial on a suitable NTS site.
