Piers joins us from DNVGL where he worked as a Measurement Consultant, as part of the Network Integrity Team at Cadent (formerly National Grid Gas Distribution).
He brings specialist in-depth knowledge of Flow-Weighted Average Calorific Value systems including Omni and Flow-X flow computers and the DANINT software suite which will complement our business and enhance our offering to our downstream clients.
We caught up with him this week to see how he was getting on:
Tell us about your role at KELTON?
I will be primarily providing support to the UK Distribution Networks and Transmission System Operator, using my specialist knowledge of FWACV gas measurement systems.
What did you do before this role?
I started at National Grid as a network analyst working on the network model, designing reinforcements to the network and analysing non-routine operations. I progressed to a role in the measurements and processing group focusing on high pressure gas metering mainly at the NTS-LDZ Offtakes.
At DNVGL I principally worked on gas flow measurement and E&I projects. The flow measurement work was mostly for Distribution Networks and National Grid Gas. Additionally, I also worked for upstream and overseas customers.
What are your first impressions of KELTON?
I like the effort that people have made to introduce themselves and to provide guidance about various aspects of the company. It has helped me settle in quickly. There seems to be a sense of familiarity, working in a small company that is lacking at a larger company.
I have been impressed with the quality of the applications that have been developed. The applications appear to be more advanced than products offered by competitors.
How do you spend your free time?
I like to travel, and I have a house in Spain. In the UK, I shoot (clay pigeon) and I plan to sail more this year. I intend to gain the day skipper sailing qualification and sail in the Mediterranean Sea.
