The political support also includes the ambition to participate and contribute internationally in meeting the new challenges that has already appeared and we are ready to use as well direct financial support as in-kind measures to support developments and take up new developments as pilot project. We have a tradition of quick uptake of new technologies and have already for many years provided financial and practical support for pilot investigations of new pipe renovation methods as well as condition monitoring technologies.
