The primary objectives are to determine if a prototype system meets the requirements to undertake a ECV exchange in a safe, controlled manner and in ‘no gas’ conditions on live gas supply.
The specific objectives are:
• Development of a concept – TRL4
• Selection of the most suitable enclosure – flexible vs rigid
• Demonstration of the concept in a controlled environment
• Review of E&R Procedures related specifically to ECV exchange
• Development timeline for TRL5 to TRL8
