Unique water main inspection at airfield location
Water main inspection to manage the critical assets for the Vancouver International Airport takes months of proactive planning, safety and scheduling. In the management of a major international airport like Vancouver International Airport (YVR), Vancouver Airport Authority (VAA) operation officials inevitably face a number of unique challenges. Compounding the challenges is the fact that the […]
Unexpected pipe material surprises inspection team
This assessment using the latest underwater inspection technology, provided TOSA significant value in cost savings and avoided unnecessary public disruption, all while providing a better understanding of their infrastructure for the long-term management of their ocean outfall.
Asset management begins with leak detection
Since not all leaks are obvious, a proactive leak detection strategy plays an important role in any asset management program.
Increased regulation makes rising main management a risk priority
While metallic rising mains have been historically difficult to manage, a risk-based approach increases confidence in the pipeline condition.
Condition assessment saves City of Spokane more than $6 million
Replacement programs for risky aging mains are often far more complicated and expensive than anticipated.
Increased regulation makes force main management a risk priority
While metallic force mains have been historically difficult to manage, a risk-based approach increases confidence in the pipeline condition.
Is there pipeline life after 40 years of non-operational use?
Sahara® leak detection tool deployed on pipeline after 40 years of non-operational use.
Rising tide among obstacles during this force main inspection
Tight deadlines and rising tide among obstacles during this force main inspection.
Inspection that took 5 months now completed in a single day
Pure Technologies completes longest single day pipeline inspection to date using PipeDiver® technology.
Manage metallic pipeline networks in a sustainable manner
While PCCP assessment and management has been successfully used by utilities for years, only recently have effective solutions for metallic pipe been commercialized.
No silver bullet technology for pipeline condition assessment
For utilities with large-diameter networks, waiting for failures to occur before repairing or replacing highly critical mains is not an option. With a large amount of buried water infrastructure reaching the end of its service life, operators have every incentive to take a proactive approach to asset management.
