Ensure the integrity of transmission infrastructures (excluding distribution and as they are currently used)
“Our R&D helps to guarantee safety,
routing and support the energy
transition, while keeping costs under control.”

Corrosion is a complex and evolving phenomenon, which represents a risk for steel pipelines.
Some categories of defects and some pipelines networks configurations are challenging to inspect.
The severity of a defect is sometimes overestimated due to multiple uncertainties.
Some defects still require complex interventions to be repaired
Development of approaches, models, criteria, tools, software, techniques, which cover corrosion prevention and mitigation, pipelines inspection and control, defect analysis and repair, and that aim to maintain a high level of safety over time.
Coating ageing management
