Sensa, the leading provider of fibre optic temperature sensing and monitoring solutions for critical assets around the world, today announced that its fibre optic distributed temperature sensing (DTS) system has been chosen by National Grid plc for continuous temperature monitoring of a new 4km pipeline at the first UK LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) importation terminal for 20 years at the Isle of Grain, Kent.

A bespoke DTS system designed by Sensa has been installed at the terminal, providing 82 sensing elements that are attached to the top and bottom surfaces of the pipe. The pipeline forms part of the first phase of the development of the LNG terminal at the Isle of Grain, which was opened earlier this year as part of National Grid’s development project and £130m of initial investment.
