Dutch Water Boards ‘Waterschap Aa en Maas‘, ‘Hoogheemraadschap Hollands Noorderkwartier‘, ‘Waterschapsbedrijf Limburg‘, ‘Waterschap Zuiderzeeland‘ and Acquaint B.V. worked together on the development of an in-line inspection technique for Asbestos Cement (AC) wastewater mains.
The process of this pilot and its results were captured in a film. It shows that with this new technique it is possible to conduct in-line inspections over the entire length of the sewer mains and detect the failure mechanisms. As a result their condition can be mapped accurately.
We expect to reach a significant cost reduction in the future.
Recordings were made during the preparation, the pipeline inspections in the field and the data analysis, and processed in the film.
If you also ask yourself whether you have to replace your pressure mains, or whether they will still last for a while with proper risk-based maintenance, then start with an in-line inspection as soon as possible.
