PIG Award Winner

We are delighted to announce that FT Pipeline Systems, in conjunction with Stantec, Northumbrian Water Group, Mott MacDonald and Farrans, won the ‘Large Diameter Pipeline Project Award’ at the recent PIG Innovation Awards.

FT Pipeline’s Managing Director, Ian Harding, attended the PIG Innovation Awards event at the Science and Technology Museum in Manchester on 13 June. FTPS is part of the winning consortium of companies working on the ‘Tees and Central Strategic Transfer Mains’ project, which is a resilience project linking Barnard Castle and Darlington in the north east of England.

The scheme involves around 32km of 800mm and 900mm coated and lined steel water pipes along with approximately 400 bespoke fittings. The design house, Stantec, centred the design around using lengths of pipe ranging from 8.4m to 14m in order to minimise the onsite fabrication requirements, reducing the number of cuts / welds needed to be made by the contractor.

In addition to this, Stantec highlighted a variety of bends and other fittings that would be needed at specific points throughout the project. FTPS and Farrans Construction worked closely to ensure delivery of the fittings coincided with the prodution plan.
