Brookfield Lane – DG Replacement

This scheme involved the wholesale replacement of an MP/LP district governor at Brookfield Lane, Churchdown, Gloucestershire.

The existing site consisted of an above ground multi-fed governor installation and a range of redundant above and below pipework. The governor installation, supplying the low-pressure gas to the village of Churchdown, had been identified as nearing the end of its serviceable life, with the redundant pipework in poor condition.

Green Frog Utilities, acting as principal contractor, were able to successfully complete the project both on time and on budget.
