A new age of robotic innovation is dawning right beneath our feet. And National Grid Gas Transmission (NGGT) is at the very heart of this exciting revolution.
After securing £5.7m of Ofgem funding, NGGT is driving forward with Project GRAID (Gas Robotic Agile Inspection Device). The three-year venture will see NGGT – along with three supporting SMEs – design and build a robotic inspection device which can determine the true asset condition of below-ground pipework at high-pressure gas installations.
It’s groundbreaking work that will raise the bar in robotic technology and deliver huge cost and carbon-cutting benefits.
