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 metallic pipe support materials and design.

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

The project will provide the necessary designs and experimental data to support the use of alternative pipe supports across the NTS.
