IK-UK take part in first BHA Pigging Seminar

IK-UK have recently become members of the British Hydropower Association and this week we helped them run their first ever Pigging Seminar.  The seminar involved a technical presentation and demonstration of our pigging products alongside our sister company Online Electronics’ pig tracking and signaling solutions.

This was followed by a visit to Logan Gill, a local hydropower scheme to allow attendees to witness the practical side of the Pigging process. 

The seminar was a fantastic opportunity for us to highlight and demonstrate the importance of pipeline cleaning to members of this industry as well as broaden our own knowledge on the hydro power generations sector.
