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.

  • Innovative new products and services that can be used in the construction, maintenance, repair, replacement and management of gas distribution networks regularly appear on the market.

  • 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.
    Show
  • 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.
    Show
  • You probably collect large quantities of data about your network, including, for example, inspection reports for stations, pipeline leakage detection details, breakdown records or other information.

  • 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.
    Show
  • Kiwa Technology can offer support to operators of pipelines such as gas distribution companies, water boards and heat energy companies when implementing RBAM.
    Show
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The added value of Risk Based Asset Management (e.g. according to PAS55 or NTA 8120) can be broken down into a number of internal and external benefits.
    Show
  • The energy distribution sector is continually evolving. When taking control of networks, it is important to obtain insight into their technical condition. The quality of the assets being acquired is a determinant factor in their value.
