When designing buildings, the safe performance of maintenance during short-term work is generally not, or insufficiently, taken into account. This concerns work such as carrying out cleaning maintenance, minor repairs, inspections, etc.
The independent investigation of incidents enables them to be used objectively as lessons to be learnt for the future. By learning from incidents, the correct measures can be taken to reduce these. For gas network operators in the Netherlands, Kiwa Technology provides a call-out service that can be reached 24/7.
Gas distribution safety is currently a topic of high social interest. Organisations such as the supervisory bodies, the Dutch Energy Council and the Dutch National Mines Inspectorate explicitly hold network operators accountable for their responsibilities in ensuring safe gas distribution.
Irene Pro is a comprehensive and user-friendly analysis and calculation solution for gas networks. Developed by Kiwa, Irene Pro serves as an essential tool for numerous network operators in the construction, management and maintenance of gas networks.
The resistance against permeation of gases and water through pipe walls and other separation components such as films, is for many practical applications a very important property. In this area, Kiwa Technology has gained vast knowledge and experience.
Polymers are widely used in construction, building and infrastructure. Construction and utility parts in buildings are often partly or completely polymeric or elastomeric products. This can be as wall panels, roofing materials, piping systems, seals, coatings and a large number of other products.
Reliablity engineering of plastic and rubber products.
The realisation of reliable polymer and rubber products starts in the design or engineering stage. There the fundamental choices are made that have a major influence on the functioning of the product in the end.
Replacement and maintenance strategies - This is a costly and time-consuming operation, which means it is important to make clear choices about which sections it would be best to replace within which period of time. Kiwa Technology can advise you.
Based on the Dutch Gas Transportation and Delivery Act (Gaswet), a regional gas network operator (regionale gasnetbeheerder or RNB) is responsible for gas quality. In this context, quality means the composition of the gas and its odour characteristics.
In Germany, plastic products of all kinds as well as rubber products that come into contact with drinking water must meet the hygienic and toxicological requirements of the guidelines of the Federal Environment Agency test (UBA). This is described in the elastomer guideline as well as in the KTW guideline.
When things go wrong, one needs a quick and reliable answer to a series of questions. For this experts are needed who have experience in a broad range of products and applications. Often a certain failure has occurred earlier in a total different application.
