Description South Hook LNG terminal, Wales
Challenge Insulation work had to be carried out in protected, dry conditions

To create weatherproof access solutions in a exposed coastal environment for the new build of a regasification plant was an easy task for Brand Energy (Formerly Harsco Infrastructure).

For the construction of this major new regasification plant in West Wales, Harsco developed and erected a series of weatherproof access solutions for the installation of insulation for the tanks and pipelines. The insulation work had to be carried out under protected and dry conditions - a particular challenge in view of the exposed coastal position of the plant.

The solution was developed using a modular aluminium roofing system. Despite its light weight, it was able to span large widths. The structure was covered with a translucent covering, allowing all work to be carried out in daylight with full protection against the weather.

“One of the best systems that I have used. I lost one day out of 18 months due to bad weather. Unbelievable.”
