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.

  • 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
  • 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.
    Show
  • Gas systems that are used in industrial processes must be suitable for use and demonstrably comply with all environmental and safety requirements.

  • 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
  • Under occupational health legislation, technical distribution work, among other things, must be carried out safely. A basis for this is the application of correct and complete work procedures which detail the work methods, materials and personal instructions.

  • 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.
    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.
