Following the successful conclusion of the field trial, reported in April, SGN has become the first company to introduce Osprey pressure validators into business as usual.

These units will support the annual validation programme and will prove invaluable in depot operation activities in SGN’s Scottish and southern gas distribution networks.

SGN’s detailed financial assessment identifies potential financial savings to be realised from this technology including:

  • Accuracy of measurement with, in time, reduced leakage through lower network pressures
  • Time saved in checking data to ensure that a specific logger is reporting from the correct location and at a specific time
  • Elimination of data loss through product failure
  • Reputational benefit from faster resolution of pressure-related incidents through increased customer satisfaction
