The UKSTT & the Pipeline Industries Guild recently joined forces to form The Green Alliance with the intention to explore, share and promote the industry’s drive towards net zero and reduction in environmental impact.
On the 11th May the Green Alliance held their inaugural webinar on ‘Introducing Hydrogen to the Gas Networks”. Presentations were delivered by Ryan Smith, SGN NIA, Programme Lead, Stephen Tomlinson, SGN H100, Fife Programme Lead and Dr. Ali Asmari, RRES Project Engineering Lead, ULC Technologies.
Starting the session with an Overview of the UK Hydrogen Development Landscape was Ryan Smith which was followed by Stephen Tomlinson with an Overview of SGN’s H100 Fife Project and the part it can play to deliver on Net Zero. Completing the webinar was Dr. Ali Asmari with a presentation on Sustainable Roadworks with Robotics.
Norman Howell, webinar moderator and The Pipeline Industries Guild Chief Executive Officer, summarised the webinar by saying “We’ve had a really good session and I would like to thank all of our guest speakers who took time out of their busy schedules to provide us with such interesting and thought provoking presentations today. These presentations have provided us with an understanding, first of all, of the impact hydrogen can make on our road to net zero through the decarbonisation of our gas pipeline networks. We also heard how robotics can revolutionise inspections and maintenance repair of our underground infrastructure. Both of these innovative moves forward will help us to meet our challenges of climate change and reduction of environmental impacts of our activities into the future….”
Throughout 2021 The Green Alliance will be hosting a series of webinars leading up to a face-to-face seminar at No-Dig Live which is due to take place in Peterborough from 14-16 September 2021.
