Dublin Metallic Mains Renewal


Dublin Metallic Mains Renewal

Bord Gáis Network

RPS was appointed by Bord Gáis Networks (BGN) to provide design services for the identification and replacement of the remaining metallic gas mains and services identified within the greater Dublin Area.

The Dublin Metallic Mains Renewal Programme was initiated in 2011 to examine locations where Bord Gáis Network’s GIS system indicated that there was a possibility of metallic mains still in use in the gas network.

This project was a unique opportunity for RPS to operate within all areas of the Gas Distribution network. It highlights our ability to conduct a large scale quality assurance exercise on an extensive network, using the BGN internal IT systems to carry out a desk top review followed by site visual inspections, the issue of construction packs via the BGN asset management system to verify and replace metallic mains and the subsequent updating of the BGN GIS and QA.
