Protecting your network system

Good network management involves anticipating breakdown risks and their impact, reducing your system’s energy consumption, and controlling your operating costs and investment expenditure.

Controlling Water and Energy Consumption and Reducing Health Hazards

By working to tackle leaks, we can cut operating costs and safeguard water supply, as well as controlling risks associated with health, the environment and industry regulations.


How we clean pipes with ice

Industrial manufacturers need to keep their networks (wastewater, effluents, oil, gas, etc.) clean. But they also want to limit the environmental impacts of the use of chemicals or large quantities of water. With ice pigging, SUEZ offers an innovative solution that uses ice to clean pipes.

With Ice Pigging, we offer our industrial customers a solution for cleaning their water systems, simply and effectively

Cleaning pipes with just a few liters of ice

Normally, it takes hundreds of liters of water to keep pipelines clean in an industrial situation. But ice pigging technology consumes just a few liters of ice. This new technology uses the natural abrasive qualities of ice to remove sediments and other foreign substances, such as crystallized salts and biofilms in particular, from pipelines. Quick and economical to use. In a plant that manufactures yoghurt in the UK for example, ice pigging recovered more than 75% of the value-added product which had been deposited in the pipelines. And the consumption of chemicals was significantly reduced too. On top of that, Ice Pigging won the 2016 World Food Innovation Award in the Best Manufacturing/Processing Technology category.
