TransCanada is an industry leader in pipeline integrity and safety. TransCanada has an extensive Pipeline Maintenance Program (PMP) to monitor, inspect and repair our pipeline facilities, and we invest hundreds of millions of dollars each year to maintain the integrity of our system.
These safety measures will be put in place to keep Energy East Pipeline operating safely:
Pipeline Safety Monitoring
Shut-off valves, strategically placed approximately every 30 kilometres along the pipeline, are designed to immediately shut off when pressure drops.
The use of electronic in-line detection devices known as Smart PIGs allows for the detection of defects in the pipe.
