Project CLoCC invites Expressions of Interest for Pilot Customer

Submission deadline has now closed

Please note, the deadline for submitting expressions of interest has now closed.

Project CLoCC is now in its last project stage – detailed design, build, test and business readiness.

As a result, National Grid Gas Transmission (NGGT), is now inviting expressions of interest from parties wishing to collaborate with the Project CLoCC team in order to directly support our project’s stage 3 requirements, specifically testing and verification of project outputs prior to project completion.

We are seeking interest from parties wishing to become the Project CLoCC pilot customer. Broadening testing of our project outputs to date at a connection site in collaboration with a customer would provide valuable proof of concept information prior to project completion.

Timeline and cost reductions developed so far by the project would be able to be practically validated improving confidence and accuracy in the final deliverables provided to National Grid by the project in October 2018.

Furthermore, it is our objective to assess the entire new gas customer connections journey developed by the project in partnership with our pilot customer from initial application to commissioning.
