Smartpipes, assets monitoring for efficient maintenance: Underground pipeline network is the main infrastructure of water supply. In the Netherlands around 120 thousand km of water mains are present, but their operational conditions are mostly unknown and failure can be expensive. This project aims to develop a new online inspection technology by integrating sensing system into pipeline and finally a prototype of a smart pipe will be made. This visionary smartpipes project will- provide insight of operational conditions and material state; reduce failure uncertainty and save large investment; return valuable information about replacement and repair strategy.
