Visionary Project GRAID is set to bring the future closer – and make never-before-seen technology a reality for the first time. It will mark a move from predictive modelling into a brave new world of sending robots inside high-pressure gas pipelines to analyse the condition of critical assets.
Generating carbon savings
This technological leap will allow NGGT to cut asset maintenance costs by eliminating unnecessary excavations and providing data to allow asset life extension.
It will also generate carbon savings of more than 2,000 tonnes annually, equivalent to the emissions from almost 500 UK households. It is a critical benefit as we move towards a low-carbon economy.
