Research Project Description

The Netherlands have an enormous underground infrastructure of cables and pipelines. These utilities are mostly located under the ground and are therefore subject to damage. The advert of the damage to these infrastructure, especially high pressure pipelines which carry dangerous substances, range from service disruptions to loss of life, serious injury, and/or significant environmental impact. Third party damage has been recognized as most dominant cause of the damage to the underground high pressure pipelines, and based on the European Gas Incident Group (EGIG) and CONCAWE, damages are mostly caused by excavation and construction around pipelines. It is for this reason that more initiatives are needed to reduce the number of pipeline incidents.

This research aims to develop a safety system, based on real-time visualization, to protect high pressure pipelines from excavation damage when a third party wants to excavate without any in advanced information about the location of the pipelines.
