Installation of 2No Single MV Circuits over 5.3km – Drybridge to Drogheda

Global Rail Services Limited (GRSL) has completed a significant and complex civil engineering project from Drybridge to Drogheda Town Centre, in Co. Lough, on behalf of long-term client ESB Networks.

In their capacity as PSCS for the project, GRSL supplied a secure yard/compound and were responsible for liaison with ESB, Louth County Council and all affected residents and business owners.

Providing a fully managed service including QSE representation for the project duration, the work scope covered the excavation, ducting, backfilling and reinstatement of trenches, including crossing a stream. GRSL also connected two existing ducts that were under the M1 motorway, laid ducts over/under existing services and culverts and installed a 400mm2 XLPE power cable prior to completion of all road and pavement restoration works.

Significant amounts of hand excavation assisted by a vacuum excavator – to help protect existing services – was also undertaken, which were very deep in a number of locations. GRSL were responsible for the design and construction of all temporary works.

Full Traffic Management was provided throughout, which covered 8 different road opening licences and 21 separate traffic management plans.

The project was a necessity for the town of Drogheda; supporting power capacity upgrades to enable future development.

Global Rail Services Limited Project Manager, John Casey added:

“Well done to all concerned for a successful project and with special thanks to supply chain partner Córas Pipeline Services Ltd.”
