Induced AC Analysis & Remediation

The ‘Not-in-my-backyard’ ideals have resulted in high instances of joint occupancy of the same right-of-way by one or more pipelines and power lines. These congested right-of-ways often results in significant induced AC effects on pipelines paralleling HVAC lines. AC corrosion is being discovered on pipelines which were once thought to be adequately protected. Additionally, these pipelines can become electrically hazardous to personnel who may come into accidental contact with the pipeline or equipment and can also cause damage to the equipment itself.
