Costain has won a key role on the National Grid’s major scheme to replace a critical natural gas pipeline in the North East.
The contractor won the project services contract for the River Humber Pipeline project.
Costain’s work will include health and safety; project management; project controls and planning; commercial management; engineering; risk management; and specialist tunnelling.
The 5km River Humber pipeline connects a gas import location at Easington, on the East Yorkshire coast, to the national network.
Tidal patterns have left parts of the pipeline – which runs in a trench along the river bed between Paull and Goxhill – exposed. Planning consent for a replacement is expected this summer.
Costain power sector director Nigel Curry said: “The award of this contract demonstrates Costain’s ability to meet its customers’ needs through our broadened consultancy and advisory project service offering.”
