Old Kent Road Gas Holder Station

This work involved the diversion of a 48” medium pressure gas main and a 24” intermediate pressure steel gas main replacing the 48” with 630mm polyethylene.

The holder station and PRS station needed to be taken offline within a specific, tight time period. There was contaminated ground to contend with plus deep excavations, in a high risk working area requiring specialist welding operations.

It was vital that Forefront Utilities ensured clear planning and communication with Southern Gas Networks (SGN) to ensure an efficient programme of works, while we also had to agree an operational plan with the local authority to minimise any environmental hazards. Forefront Utilities deployed a highly skilled team to lay the large diameter pipe under our close supervision and that of SGN.
