Technology Transfer of Lining Technologies to the Gas Industry

October 18, 2012 Categories: Latest News

WRc has recently started an Innovation Funding Incentive for Sustainable Development scheme (IFI/SD) project on behalf of UK gas companies (National Grid Gas plc, Northern Gas Networks Limited, Scotia Gas Networks and Wales & West Utilities Limited). The work will develop bespoke performance specifications and a best practice guide for pipeline lining techniques. 

Lining systems can potentially offer many benefits compared with existing replacement options: including reduced carbon emissions, quicker installation and less site disruption to the local community and businesses. These documents, being prepared by WRc, will define the requirements that cured-in-place lining and spray lining systems will need to meet to be considered ‘fit-for-purpose’ for use in the UK gas industry.
