GD - Reliability and maintenance
Active Network Management, Control Systems, Demand Response, Environmental, Network Automation and Network Monitoring
SGN rely on several Pressure Control and Management (PC&M) systems to operate their Gas Networks, however, some of this technology is outdated and reaching the end of its design life. Consequently, it will not be possible to continue maintaining them for much longer. These PC&M systems are specifically designed to ensure that Network pressures are sufficiently optimized to ensure maximum Network efficiency is constantly maintained by reacting to downstream demand.
This project will include:
  • Detailed conceptual design.
  • Risk assessment.
  • Gap analysis.
  • Manufacturing a prototype for offsite testing.
  • Carrying out at least five live field trials.
