Napier, Hawke’s Bay
This project consisted of Warner Construction Ltd completing the realignment of 210m worth of 8” steel low pressure (20 barg) natural gas line for PowerCo on Hyderabad Road in Napier.
The scope was to excavate and install the new line which included Welding, Pipe Bending, 100% NDT, Hydro-testing, Drying, Coating Application, Surveying, Hot Tapping, Commissioning and QA. Total reinstatement of the road and vegetation were also part of this project.
This project was very complex due to the new pipeline route being on a major heavy traffic route to the port and multiple buried services.
Work was completed within a seven week time frame with continuous traffic flow and no disruption to the gas line.
Excellent Health and Safety record were achieved throughout this job. Audits carried out on the work site by Work Safe NZ, PowerCo and Transit NZ all achieved exceptional results.
