First major commission for Wales and West Utilities

« Go Back to 2006

Wales & West Utilities, formerly part of National Grid Transco, is a regulated gas distribution business with pipelines across Wales and southwest England. Its primary role, undertaken on behalf of gas shippers, is to transport gas safely and efficiently to the gas meters of homes and businesses.

Recognized as a leader in safety performance, Wales and West was chosen as Gas Industry Network Operator of the Year in 2008 and received the Customer Service Award in 2009.

The project involves the modification works for the Colwyn Bay PRI Upgrade. The station modification works consist of removing the existing water bath heating system and replacing it with electric immersion heating, modifying the existing HP to MP regulator streams, construction of new inlet and outlet headers and new station outlet pipework.

To enable this work to be carried out, a full temporary station bypass required construction.

Long O Donnell Associates were commissioned to provide full Project Services Support including Quantity Surveying, Cost Engineering Services, CDM Co-ordination Services, Health, Safety and Environmental Services, Risk Management, Programme Management and QA/QC Inspection Services.
