West Burton Gas Pipeline


EDF Energy

  • Front end Engineering Design


Penspen was commissioned to carry out the Front End Engineering Design for the 24” diameter high pressure gas pipeline from Gainsborough in Lincolnshire to West Burton Power Station in Nottinghamshire in 2007/8. We were then commissioned to oversee pipeline construction and pre-commissioning in 2009, and commissioning in 2011.


  • FEED during 2007/8
  • PMC during construction
  • Fulfilling the role of client’s CDM Co-ordinator and Engineer on site
  • Assist in Commissioning in 2011.


Penspen achieved all client objectives, using a Pipeline Contractor (PPS) that recorded no Lost Time Injuries and an excellent safety record.


EDF Energy received a safe and efficient fully functioning pipeline on time and on budget.
