OUR TECHNICAL CAPABILITY

Our many credentials attest to the RICE teams’ ability to carry out studies designed for the specific needs of its customers (operators, equipment manufacturers, other research organizations, etc.).

These studies are based on test facilities and numerical computation, modeling and simulation tools that reinforce our cutting-edge expertise, together with decades of experience feedback from the operation of gas infrastructures:

  • the Mechanical Test Hall at the Sibelius site, its pits and its mechanical attack bench for testing pipe defects;
  • the various laboratories on the Sibelius site:
    • materials characterisation
    • gas analysis and detection,
    • corrosion,
    • characterisation and behaviour testing of polymer materials,
  • the buried grid test area
  • the prototyping workshops,
  • Computing or measurement software created by RICE to support network operations and decision-making
  • Alfortville station’s gas and air test benches for developing, qualifying and testing all types of systems, network equipment or counting devices used in both transmission and distribution, in real-world situations
  • Testing facilities for the connecting chains located on the Alfortville station

  • Mobile equipment for measurements in the field…
