It’s a big day in Dungannon for SGN Natural Gas and our Gas to the West project.
Along with partners Mutual Energy, our SGN Natural Gas team has launched the next full construction phase of the project, which involves the construction of 200km high and intermediate pressure gas pipelines.
Gas has already successfully been taken into Strabane with the first large customer connected earlier this year.
The launch of this new phase of the project takes place today in front of many stakeholders including local councillors and officials.
SGN Natural Gas Director Danny O’Malley, who is presenting at the launch said:
“We’re now in a position to get this major new phase of the build underway. We’ve finalised the appointment of the main suppliers and contractors who will be building the pipeline for us.”
“It’s only a few weeks since our team won the Team of the Year award at this year’s Outstanding People Awards and I’m very proud of them.
“Today marks yet another milestone in the amazing progress we’ve made to date and I’d like to thank everyone involved.”
We caught up with Project Manager Kevin Macdonald who tells us more.
