The aim of this project is to produce a range of options across several technology readiness levels (TRL) which will form the ‘toolbox’ of the project’s name, in order to allow SGN to select a particular tool dependent on the type of leak encountered.

The specific objectives for this project are:

  • Confirm the challenges of the solution.
  • Develop a screening process to choose the most appropriate techniques to move forward.
  • Provide a full view of the solution ‘landscape’ (idea generation).
  • Outline a long list of solutions (initial screening).
  • Carry out an Engineering Screening Process to determine the initial feasibility of the long list.
  • Recommend a short list of solutions to be taken forward with appropriate costings.
  • Carry out a validation exercise, looking at getting rough prototypes into the field and understanding their benefits and challenges.
