Round 17 Report Issued

23rd November 2018

For the first day of testing of each week (25th September & 2nd October) the concentrations will be aimed at those found from Gas Turbine (GT) emissions. Concentrations for the 2nd to 4th day of testing each week will be aimed at those found at WI and LCP sites. GT test days will generally have higher nitrogen dioxide and oxygen concentrations than those found on WI and LCP days.

The Gas Measurement & Gas Cylinder Scheme will be conducted at NPL. Measurements of three test concentrations and gas cylinders will be completed in one day. The details for testing on the day can be found in the individual protocols located at: Forms and Protocols.
