OPTIMAL PIPELINE MANAGEMENT

Pipeline inspection

Pipeline Inspection, with the aim to conduct preventive inspections to generate data for policy development, maintenance and management, is a subject that is often discussed in the water sector.

In practice the applications of intelligent inspections are uncommon and fragmented. Current inspection options are often focussed on visual information.

In contrast to the water sector the Oil & Gas sector makes extensive use of pipeline inspections, also called Pigging or In-Line Inspection (ILI). This is for HDM Pipelines one of our prominent areas of expertise and we would like to fully use our knowledge and experience in this area in the water sector. For more information, go to our area of expertise Oil & Gas, service Pigging/In-Line Inspection (ILI).



Why to choose HDM Pipelines?


HDM Pipelines does not pretend to have a solution for everywhere, but we have the knowledge and a range of possibilities in intelligent inspections that we are able to adapt to your specific needs. Independent and based on over 40 years of experience in this specific topic.

Most importantly perhaps is that HDM Pipelines can take out the maximum result during the preparation/implementation, as well as by interpretation of the results.

We like to discuss and analyse an example situation with you during an informal non-committal meeting.

Our experience is that in the area of inspections there are always additional questions that need to be solved. At that moment HDM Pipelines would like to be your partner again. In this way we contribute to developing future inspection methods. We believe the numbers tell the tale.



In practice


To be able to conduct such intelligent inspections in water-pipeline systems is quite a challenge. In the water sector we are dealing with different materials and limited experience with inspections. Budgetary limitations often limit the possibilities to research your specific situation, while there is so much to gain! HDM Pipelines in collaboration with you, is able to map this efficiently and at low cost, and will provide you an informed judgement.

Practical example: During regular work is A drinking water company discovers during regular working activities that a major FRP distribution pipeline appears to have suffered from damage. At such a moment, time is crucial and there is not always the possibility to carry out a proper inspection.

In this situation the maximum result is achieved by:

  • Including a complete factual situation sketch (practice);
  • Linking, as usual, to the existing asset management information of this pipeline (theory);
  • Integration of other knowledge and information in the organisation (practice);
  • And an independent review through material study & Root Cause Analysis (practice).
