PMP have worked with Stonbury on many projects and they contracted us to refurbish a non-return valve and gate valve in Kelgate Service Reservoir, Beverley, East Yorkshire. Once started, we were also tasked with replacing corroded operating chains, removing redundant pipe work and with replacing an iron staircase which no longer complied with health & safety.

All work had to be carried by confined spaces trained personnel as the works were to be carried out in an underground storage reservoir. Lifting gear was installed to facilitate the removal of the valve heads and redundant equipment.

The non-return valve and gate valve were stripped, cleaned and refurbished on site and recommissioned. The redundant pipework was cut into sections for safe removal and the staircase was dismantled and removed. A new, prefabricated, stainless steel staircase, designed to current health and safety guidelines, was assembled and installed on site.

All works were completed over a two week period.
