Spire is constantly looking for ways to improve the safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to their customers. Through a partnership with ULC Robotics, Spire has integrated the use of innovative technology into their daily operations with the deployment of CISBOT, a cast iron joint sealing robot designed to reinforce the integrity of natural gas mains.
CISBOT operates under live conditions—meaning that customers stay connected to their gas service—and requires fewer crews and heavy construction equipment: efficiencies which help avoid costs for Spire customers.
“Using this technology, we’re delivering on our promise to customers to always provide a reliable system while keeping our rates as low as possible,” said Tim Goodson, Vice President of Operations at Spire.
Watch the video below to see how Spire is using ULC Robotics’ CISBOT technology to strengthen their network, prevent gas leaks, and extend the life of their large diameter cast iron mains.
