JD7 wins pipeline inspection framework with Scottish Water
Pipeline inspection specialist JD7 is to carry out condition assessments and inspect pipelines across Scotland having been awarded a six-year framework contract with Scottish Water.
The deal, which is for six years with an option to extend for a further six years, is part of Scottish Water’s new Assess & Address approach to pipeline inspection, which aims to use the latest surveying techniques to drive down the cost of pipeline operation and maintenance, deliver improved overall asset life, and ensure that the right amount of budget is invested in the right area at the right time.
All materials and diameters of pipeline are included in the contract, which covers all regions of Scotland.
Stuart Hamilton, managing director of JD7, said: “Scottish Water’s new Assess & Address approach is ahead of the curve and should be considered within other utility companies. We are confident our innovative pipeline inspection and condition assessment technologies will deliver the results they are looking for.”
JD7 has developed non-disruptive pressurised water main CCTV, acoustic and non-destructive testing (NDT) condition assessment technologies with support from the UK’s leading utility and private sector companies.
