Implementation of training programs

With a history that goes back to the famous British Gas Engineering Research Station, we have an extensive track record helping gas network operators systematically evaluate and realize the benefits of new technologies and processes:

  • Development of specifications
  • Test program design and delivery
  • Scoping and management of field trials
  • Assessment and validation
  • Technical assurance
  • Standards and procedures

We know how the various innovation funding mechanisms work (such as the Network Innovation Allowance or Strategic Innovation Funds) and what is required to deliver a successful project. We have worked with all the UK gas networks and can produce all relevant reports and supporting documentation.
