Gas Distribution Networks
This project is to conduct additional research to evaluate whether trained sniffer dogs can be added to operation teams.
BKI will collate all information gathered during the project and report the findings. This will focus the dog’s performance, accuracy, sensitivity, and suitability for ongoing inspections.
The project will be deemed successful if a technical report has been issued summarising the project’s outcomes based on the following parameters:
- The dog’s performance in terms of accuracy and sensitivity
- It’s suitability for ongoing inspections in comparison to conventional methods
- Identification of potential benefits in comparison to conventional methods through increased speed of leakage detection and avoided excavations and their associated financial, environmental and safety benefits
