In 2013, we commissioned a study to find an alternative solution to water bath heaters and boilerhouses – one that could potentially benefit our business, and all other gas distribution networks.

Two alternative technologies, Low Pressure Steam and Thermo Catalytic Systems, have been identified, and over the next three years we will be trialling these, alongside existing technologies, across 12 of our sites. Data will be made available, in real time, to other gas distribution networks and the wider industry.
