Today, still reeling from the effects of the pandemic, which we hope will soon be overcome, the focus is fortunately once again on the future. And to ensure that this one future does not just happen, we in the pipeline industry must do everything we can, to make the future as sustainable as possible.
Together, we are challenged, each of us in our own special field, to analyse the experiences of the past and present and, together with the foresight of R&D, to create sustainable new eco-sensitive solutions that comprehensively revolutinise the planning and construction of pipeline construction sites.
In other words: The responsibility of all of us to preserve this world for future generations forces us to flight forward! The good news is that the solutions are already available for almost all areas of our industrial sector. The future has arrived. No boundaries. No excuses. What are you waiting for?
In this issue of the Pipeline Technology Journal, you will learn e.g. about the use of AI to protect against geohazards, the latest Double Block and Vacuum Isolation Technology as well as fully-electric driven HDD rigs as an intelligent and eco-sensitive solution to decarbonize the footprint of pipeline job-sites.
In addition to the optimisation of the processes, the use of the latest in regard to noise and CO2 emissions fully-electric, with hydrogen or fuel cell powered low-emission construction equipment and the many logistical tasks associated with building pipelines and related plants, the most recent innovations in pipeline pre-commissioning as well as the implications for routing, construction and operation of long distance large diameter pipelines are worth to be considered.
I am very confident that the cross-border understanding of the need for joint action, coupled with the sense of responsibility of all of us, will not only prompt the decision-makers in the energy sector to just talk green, but can also initiate a lightning start, true to the motto “action speaks louder than words”. We at the STREICHER GROUP already live this philosophy. Are you also ready to push for the breakthrough?
