Humber Estuary Gas Pipeline Replacement Project, Badsworth

About this event

The joint venture of Skanska, Porr and A-hak is replacing critical gas infrastructure for National Grid by constructing a tunnel underneath the Humber Estuary into which a 5km pipeline will be inserted in a single string.

The presentation will provide an overview of the project as a whole, and the tunnelling process. A number of challenges to construction will be explained, together with the solutions that the team implemented to overcome them. There will also be an insight into how the spatial and logistical constraints of the small tunnel were overcome, to enable the installation of slurry booster pump equipment.

10.30: Registration, coffee & tea service
11.00: Chair’s welcome and announcements followed by presentation by Richard Mulligan and James Betts, Q&A and discussion
12.45: Bar open and buffet lunch service

Tea and coffee will be served at registration for the meeting, at no charge. Following the meeting a cash bar will be open and a hot and cold self-service buffet will be served, to be ordered in advance when booking for the meeting and paid in cash at registration. The cost for lunch will be £14 per person and £2 for dessert.

If you book but later you find that you are unable to attend, provided that you notify the Hon Sec not later than the booking deadline below, you will not be charged. If you cancel after that we will endeavour to make an adjustment with the venue so that you may not have to pay, but we reserve the right to request reimbursement from you if that isn’t possible.
