Awarded HN035 pipeline in North Wales

« Go Back to 2010

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

Wales and West realised that the high-pressure gas pipeline HN035 required replacement due to its condition. Several options were available, which involved the abandonment of some sections and the replacement of others with pipelines of equal or greater diameter.

The HN035 pipeline, running from Pwllheli to Blaenau Ffestiniog, involved the replacement of 4 and 6 inch pipe, over approximately 40km in distance.
