Piping systems

In addition to changes in energy generation and generation, the energy storage and distribution network will also have to be prepared for new energy flows from sustainable sources, generated locally in varying quantities. The security of the energy supply can only be guaranteed if the safety and reliability of the distribution are guaranteed.

Kiwa has the knowledge and facilities to investigate how we can continue to use the current infrastructure in combination with new forms of energy. The advantages and disadvantages of different energy carriers are analyzed and the technologies and materials are examined in our well-equipped laboratory.

  • 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.

  • Benchmarking is one of the possibilities for improving the quality of your organisation and/or processes. If you wish to achieve the objectives that you have set, for example, for your asset management, you will have to translate them into specific, measurable, objective and consistent indicators.

  • Cathodic protection (CB) is the ideal method for guarding pipelines and storage tanks against corrosion. However, the application of CB requires specialist knowledge, especially in extraordinary situations or when repairing breakdowns.

  • IRENE Pro is more than a gas network calculation program. It is an analysis tool for designing gas networks, performing network calculations and determining the level of risk or delivery reliability.

  • Network design for new areas or minor adjustments to existing networks is a determinant factor in the relationship between your investment costs and delivery reliability. You don't want to lay a large amount of pipeline capacity unnecessarily, but you do want to build in sufficient redundancy.

  • 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.

  • Damage that occurs in a heat energy distribution network can soon lead to substantial costs. These costs are not only associated with repairing the network but also with indirect damage suffered by users who are unable to draw off the heat energy they require.

  • Certification of a boiler room under ground level is intended to reduce the probability of a gas explosion in the boiler room to a significant extent. This is achieved by implementing additional measures.

  • Actively keeping track of the complete design, installation and management cycle for gas systems owned by housing associations is often difficult by the involvement of many different parties. As a result, housing associations can lose control. Kiwa Technology can help housing associations to regain full control.
