A visit to the London Medium Pressure Scheme
24th February 2022
The Morrison Energy Services team providing a more reliable energy supply for Londoners recently gave an eye-opening insight into their work.
The team, undertaking complex gas mains replacements in Westminster in collaboration with Cadent, gave a tour of the complex works being completed to deliver the London Medium Pressure Scheme (LMPS). Some of the mains which are being replaced are up to 100 years old, and to minimise disruption, the team are inserting the new mains through the existing pipe network.
These works are navigating some of London’s most iconic landmarks and sights, taking the team right up to Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and Westminster Abbey, to name but a few.
The team are facing a unique set of challenges, working closely with local authorities to minimise disruption to residents and road users and ensure the high-quality improvements stay on track, particularly with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee later this year. Works will be temporarily suspended to allow for the celebrations.
Stay tuned for more updates on the progress of this fascinating project and the hard work of the LMPS team!
