WRc, the innovation consultancy working in the Water, Environment, Gas and Resource Management sectors, is delighted to announce that its Assess & Address business specialising in pipeline condition assessment has completed its 10,000th Sahara survey.

Since 1998, WRc has been providing trunk main inspections for the water industry using its proprietary under-pressure inspection system, Sahara. The Sahara platform has evolved over the last 18 years to include a variety of condition assessment techniques such as gross metal loss, sonar and conductivity, building on its successful acoustic leakage detection, CCTV and deep main tracing capabilities.

Keith Walker, Head of Commercial Enterprise for WRc: "We have been experiencing steady growth and interest in trunk main leak detection and condition assessment services. Improved understanding and recognition of trunk main losses across the industry, coupled with an ever increasing need to manage risk of these critical assets, has led to a tripling of our operational teams. We are all delighted to have reached this milestone."
