Breivoll Inspection Technologies (BIT) is an SME that has developed and implemented an inpipe inspection method (Pipescanner) for condition assessment of steel and grey and ductile cast iron water mains. Inspection capacity is 1.500 m. from one entrance point. The method uses high tech inspection equipment and advanced software. BIT performs inspections and delivers condition reports on residual wall thickness, interior and exterior corrosion, tubercles, joints, directional changes, valves and repairs along the inspected pipeline. These data strongly improve life cycle analyses (LCA's) on aged existing water distribution infrastructure. The reports are asset management decision support tools. They enable asset managers to make informed decisions for better rehabilitation efficiency, failure risk control and economy.
