OUR TECHNICAL MEANS

Numerous references 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 on calculation, modeling and numerical simulation tools that reinforce our cutting-edge expertise and decades of experience in operating gas infrastructures:

  • the Mechanical Test Hall (HEM) at the Sibelius site, with its pits and mechanical aggression test bench for testing pipe defects;
  • the different laboratories of the Sibelius site:
    • material characterization
    • gas analysis and detection,
    • corrosion,
    • characterization and behavioral testing of polymers
  • the pipe detection test area
  • prototyping workshops,
  • the calculation or measurement software created by RICE to accompany the operation of the networks and the decision making process;
  • the gas and air test benches at the Alfortville station to develop, qualify and test in real-life situations all types of systems, network equipment and metering devices used in both transmission and distribution;
  • Testing facilities for the connecting chains located on the Alfortville station
  • Mobile equipment for measurements on the ground !!
