Our priority is to ensure any risks to the safety of our staff or contractors, the integrity of our assets, or to the continuation of our own operations are suitable mitigated or managed, our concerns relate to both the construction phase and subsequent operations of the OCGT. Our main concerns are predominantly linked to ensuring the applicant makes sufficient provision to ensure that… 1: Any of our occupied buildings which lay within any potential blast zone of the completed OCGT facility are suitably relocated or reinforced by the applicant at their cost. 2: Any of our access roads / car parks / other land that are proposed to be used for access or laydown areas are able to take the maximum loads required during the construction phase and are protected from damage and / or are fully reinstated by the applicant at their costs (this includes checking utility lines beneath roads are suitably protected from damage). 3: The method of construction and operational use of the proposed 700 mm diameter natural gas pipeline from the existing VPI site to the OCGT site does not interfere with the use of our hydrocarbon pipeline between Total Lindsey Oil Refinery and South Killingholme Jetty / Immingham Gas Jetty. 4: There is no damage to the Total Lindsey Oil Refinery to Hemel Hempstead hydrocarbon pipeline known as “The Finaline” or interruption to the safe operation thereof. This pipeline runs in, alongside or close to the No 9 feeder pipeline between plot number 39 and plot number 52. 5: A suitable traffic management plan is developed, agreed and followed so that we have continuous safe access to our land, plant, buildings and car parks so our operations are not unduly impacted.
