DNV GL partners with NGN on project

Northern Gas Networks (NGN) has been awarded GBP 9M funding by the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) to investigate the safety viability of hydrogen transportation in the UK gas distribution networks. DNV GL, alongside Health and Safety Laboratories, are primary partners.

Ofgem runs two annual Network Innovation Competitions (NICs). The award was part of this process. The project which is called H21 NICwill give critical evidence in validation of the technicalities surrounding the conversion of the existing natural gas network in Leeds.

The work will involve the DNV GL’s Spadeadam research and testing site and advisory services team. It will cover three critical areas to be subsequently used in the quantitative risk analysis: ground and air concentration testing; background consequence testing and operational testing. Results from these tests will be used to identify any modifications to operational working practices that may need to be considered.
