RELEVANT REPRESENTATION Representation by National Grid Electricity Transmission Plc and National Grid Gas Plc (together “National Grid”) to the VPI IMMINGHAM OCGT Project (“the Project”) National Grid wishes to make a relevant representation to the Project in order to protect its position in relation to infrastructure and land which is within or in close proximity to the proposed Order limits. National Grid’s rights to retain their apparatus in situ and rights of access to inspect, maintain, renew and repair such apparatus located within or in close proximity to the Order limits should be maintained at all times and access to inspect and maintain such apparatus must not be restricted. The documentation and plans submitted for the Project have been reviewed in relation to impacts on National Grid’s existing apparatus and land interests located within this area. NATIONAL GRID ELECTRICITY INFRASTRUCTURE WITHIN THE VICINITY OF THE PROPOSED WORKS The following assets, which form an essential part of the electricity transmission network in England and Wales are within, or in close proximity to, the Order limits: Overhead Lines • 2AD Over Head Line • 2AJ Over Head Line • Above and below ground associated apparatus Substation • Humber Refinery 400kV Sub Station NATIONAL GRID GAS INFRASTRUCTURE WITHIN THE VICINITY OF THE PROPOSED WORKS National Grid Gas has an Above Ground Installation (AGI) and high pressure gas transmission pipeline located within or in close proximity to the proposed order limits. The AGI and transmission pipeline form an essential part of the gas transmission network in England, Wales and Scotland: • Thornton Curtis ‘A’ AGI and offtake; • Feeder Main 9 (Paull to Hatton and associated apparatus). National Grid will require protective provisions to be included within the DCO to ensure that it’s interests are adequately protected and to ensure compliance with relevant safety standards. National Grid will liaise with the Promoter in relation to the protective provisions for inclusion within the DCO, along with any supplementary agreements which may be required. National Grid will keep the Examining Authority updated in relation to these discussions. As a responsible statutory undertaker, National Grid’s primary concern is to meet their statutory obligations and ensure that any development does not impact in any adverse way upon those statutory obligations. National Grid reserves the right to make further representations as part of the examination process but in the meantime will negotiate with the Promoter with a view to reaching a satisfactory agreement.
