Over a 3 year period Dawnus carried out major civil engineering works on this fast track project, which is one of the largest hydrocarbon projects of its kind in Europe.
Our works were divided into three packages, enabling works (£5.7m), civils and buildings groundworks (£9.5m) and civils completion works (£19.8m). Works included:
All works were carried out on a brownfield site, formerly an Esso Refinery. Following consultation with the Environment Agency it was agreed that all ground and surface water would be required to pass through a system of lagoons prior to entering the estuary. Regular liaison meetings were held with the local authorities as well as the Countryside Commission for Wales, DEFRA, EA, HSE and Milford Haven Port Authority to keep them informed of our activities.
Turnover on this project was regularly in excess of £1m per month and Dawnus was able to react to and achieve the necessary outputs with its own directly employed workforce and plant; at the project’s peak we had 120 directly employed operatives and 20 management staff working on site.
