Veolia buys HydraSnake™ Tool for water main inspection in France

The large French water company, Veolia, became interested in HydroScope inspection techniques and approached Russell to design/built a hybrid Tool to fit their 8” water mains. The HydraSnake Tool™ contains See Snake™ electronics plus line driver circuits that send a portion of the data collected up a wireline to a host computer above ground. This allows the operators to see that the Tool is working properly and to monitor the quality of the data as it is being gathered. Thickness data from the water main is also stored on board the Tool and is downloaded immediately after the inspection. The Tool can inspect 1000m of pipeline in less than 4 hours, providing exceptional value to Veolia.
