Designing Your Connection

So far so good! We’ve identified a suitable connection point, determined the best means of connection and examined available capacity.

The next crucial stage is to produce detailed designs for the connection.

Our engineers can work up the design for the connection pipe and the remote operating valve. Alternatively, if you’ll be connecting to a medium or intermediate pressure main, you may wish to commission your own design for these elements, which we would then validate.

You are also responsible for the design of the Gas Entry Unit to our specifications, which we will validate. All design standards and specifications can be found in our Documents Library.

At this stage in the process, we’ll also require an assessment of the quality of your Biomethane, referred to a GQ8 and any upgrade work needed to meet the regulatory standards for our network.
