Work will involve rebuilding four ‘Above ground installations’ (AGI) in Rochdale and Hollinwood, in the North West gas distribution network, a third AGI in Peter’s Green, in the East of England, and a pressure reduction station in Kenton, North London.
Murphy will shortly be starting site surveys and design work with the programme due to be completed by the end of 2020.
Darren Elsom, Director of Construction, Cadent, said: “We’re continually investing to make sure our networks are fit for the future.
“These four sites are reaching the natural end of their working lives. We have decided to completely rebuild them.
“Each one involves major engineering, with unique challenges at each site.
John Murphy, CEO, J Murphy & Sons, said: “We’re pleased to have been chosen by Cadent for this exciting project, and bring our engineering expertise to help secure safe gas supplies for years to come.
“Taking on four vital installations with their own specific challenges is a project our teams are looking forward too, and we’re already getting started on the planning to deliver safely and efficiently for Cadent.”
