The aim of Project CLoCC is to reduce the current time and cost of connecting onto the NTS.
During stage one of the project many opportunities for reducing the cost of a connection have been identified
Developing modular designs for the physical connection solution onto the National Transmission System (NTS) via the conventional hot tap process as well as through existing assets such as block valves, multi-junctions and pig traps.
Developing standardised and pre-approved designs reducing the need for site specific design costs.
Avoiding permanent power supplies
Developing a physical connection solution that avoids the requirement of a permanent power supply on site.
Reduce up-front costs
Challenge the current up-front cost to apply to connect to the NTS which is currently a barrier for many potential entry customers.
Investigating alternative charging arrangements for a connection.
Considering the commercial opportunity for multiple customers to be connected at an individual connection.
