SGN Partners with ULC Robotics, Inc. to Develop CIRRIS

SGN has partnered with ULC Robotics, Inc. to develop CIRRIS, the Cast Iron Robotic Repair Inspection System. Developed under Ofgem's Network Innovation Competition, the ground-breaking technology will be used in live gas mains to repair joints on large metallic mains and carry out detailed survey works to assess the condition of the pipe. The CIRRIS platform consists of two robots - the CIRRIS XI and the CIRRIS XR Robotic Systems. The CIRRIS XI Inspection Robot is a first-of-its-kind robotic system that collates data on the condition of large diameter metallic mains from inside the pipe. Custom sensors monitor corrosion levels, wall thickness and the stress the pipe is under. This is the first time any gas network operator in the world has been able to obtain data on its distribution network in this way. The second robotic system, the CIRRIS XR Repair Robot, repairs leaks and prevents future leaks from occurring through the injection of sealant into the joints of the metallic gas main. This trenchless technology provides real potential for safety improvements with significantly less disruption to customers. The CIRRIS robots can inspect and repair hundreds of metres of live gas main from one small excavation. It removes the need for taking the main out of service and the need for multiple excavations, benefitting both customers and road users. The first ever live trial in taking place inside SGN's gas mains in South London and is ongoing throughout November. On successful completion of the trial, SGN aims to roll-out this technology on projects across its network from spring 2016.

SGN Invests GBP 100,000 to Upgrade Gas Network in Westercraigs, Dennistoun

SGN has announced that it is investing GBP 100,000 to upgrade the gas network in the Westercraigs area of Dennistoun. The essential work forms part of an ongoing mains replacement program developed with the Health and Safety Executive. SGN is replacing existing metal gas mains with new plastic polyethylene pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to the local community. Following discussions with Glasgow City Council the project will start on 16 August 2015. It will be carried out in three phases and take approximately 14 weeks in total to complete. The first phase of work will involve laying new gas mains to reinforce its gas network in the area. T company will be working in three sections of Craigpark, between Broompark Drive and Annfield Place, for approximately two weeks. In the second phase of work its engineers will be replacing the existing gas mains in Westercraigs, Clayton Terrace, Oakley Terrace and Seton Terrace over an estimated eight-week period. Due to their narrow width, Clayton Terrace, Oakley Terrace and Seton Terrace will be temporarily closed to vehicles for approximately two weeks each to ensure everyone's safety. In the third and final phase the company will be working in Westercraigs, between Annfield Place and Duke Street. Due to the location of the existing gas mains in the road, it will be necessary to temporarily close this section of Westercraigs for approximately four weeks. A signed diversion route will be in place and local access will be maintained.

SGN to Upgrade Gas Supply Network in A23 Brighton Road at Hooley

SGN has announced that it will begin work to upgrade the local gas network within the A23 Brighton Road at Hooley. Following discussions with Highways England, work will start on 27 July 2015 and last approximately seven weeks. It will be combined with a major resurfacing project on the A23 led by Connect Plus Services (CPS). The project forms part of an ongoing gas mains replacement programme developed by SGN with the Health and Safety Executive. SGN will replace the existing metal gas mains and services with modern polyethylene pipe, which has a minimum lifespan of around 80 years and will ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply for the local community for many years to come. phase one will involve the removal of the traffic islands near the junctions at Church Lane and Star Lane so that traffic can be maintained in both directions during the work. Reduced lane widths will be in operation and traffic will be limited to 20mph through the project. Church Lane and Star Lane will both be closed at their junctions with the A23 and signed diversions will be in place. The gas works will start in phase two on 3 August 2015. This will involve teams working from the junction of Star Lane proceeding both north towards Netherne Drive and south towards the Esso garage. There will also be teams working at the junction of Church Lane heading north towards the Esso garage. This phase is scheduled to last four weeks with completion set for 28 August 2015, however as soon as the teams at the Star Lane section reach the Esso garage, the company will start to reinstall the traffic islands at this location.
