    • Spotlight on Projects PEMBROKE Dornan Engineering commenced work at the Pembroke Power Station on 7th June 2010, involving the Electrical & instrumentation and HVAC packages of work the largest combined cycle power plant ever built on a plant in UK. Our first task was to ensure for the safeguard of our workforce. As the project is located 8km outside of Pembroke town, in a remote area and due to the congested nature on site with only availability of 20 car parking spaces, Dornan decided (under the approval of Alstom) to transport by bus all employees to and from the site. We investigated a number of central locations close to the main road and rail networks around Pembroke town. Our estimate is to employ a workforce of around 350 people over the project duration. We started by developing a detailed Green Travel Plan for submission for approval to proceed to Alstom. This has resulted in renting car park spaces and utilising between 4 to 5 coaches daily during peak times, staggered to alleviate road congestion in the area. The aim of this Green Travel Plan was to minimise the impact of car travel on the environment, by reducing congestion, enhancing accessibility and improving local air quality. Dornan Engineering’s Green Travel Plan is a package of behavioural and physical initiatives adopted by us, to both reduce dependency on car travel and to promote the use of alternative modes of transport or ways of working that will reduce car use to and from the Pembroke power station and the immediate road network surrounding the projects site location. We want this travel plan to work and act as our strategic document to manage the projects transport demands. In order to meet our green travel plan targets, there is a number of actions we have taken to ensure success. These can be used to a greater or lesser extent according to local conditions, and will be selected to suit the project and local authority requirements. Dornan consulted with Alstom and The Pembroke County Images: Top & bottom left: The Pembroke Power Station site view from the air. Bottom middle: The Dornan Engineering team on site.

    • Feature Lift Off After months of concise planning and preparation, Dornan’s Legal and General team, led by Project Manager Paul Morley and Health & Safety Manager Martin Rooney, executed a successful Helicopter lifting and final positioning of new Chillers and Cooling Towers to L4 Roof of the Legal and General office in Kingswood, Surrey. Supported on the day by Helirig Ltd and Plant Movements Ltd, the Helicopter took off from the Legal and General Sports field, on the East side of the building and took just 75mins to execute 20 lifts. A total of 4 chillers, 8 compressors, 4 cooling towers and 4 cooling towers fans were lifted into place. The heaviest of the equipment weighed in at 2.5 tonnes. A team of 14 men were on hand to ensure the lifting was executed as planned. All pieces of equipment were marked out and numbered, corresponding to the placement area on the roof for the Pilot to navigate the equipment into place with ease and precision. All parties involved were pleased with the smooth running operation of the lift on the day. See the full video of the Heli-lift action on our website: www.dornan.ie10 DORNAN DIGEST JANUARY - MAY 2011
    • ‘‘ Following on from the successful relationship built between Mace and Dornan Engineering Services on the Newbury Data Centre for Nationwide Building Society, where Mace achieved the British Safety Council 5 Star award, the Sword of Honour and the 5 Star Environmental Award we were keen to ensure the high standards achieved were maintained on all of our science and technology projects. Health and Safety was therefore a key consideration when awarding the sub-contract for the works at Kingswood House, as the project contains some particular challenges including the lifting of new plants onto the roof by helicopter. Dornan have yet again proved to be the right choice; winning our monthly health and safety league three months running despite tough competition from other sub-contractors. The proactive approach to Health and Safety and the commitment of a permanent representative in Martin Rooney for this task have all played a part in this achievement, as has the active participation in the safety committee meetings and our BMOS (Behavioural Management of Safety) scheme which seeks to modify the actions of those working on site by getting them to look at what is and is not safe on site for themselves. The aim is to change all of our attitudes to safety and create an ongoing safe culture. The management and execution of the helicopter lifting and plant movement activities over the course of one weekend again had to be well planned and coordinated in advance between our two companies to ensure logistics, security and welfare requirements were all meshed and could be cohesively presented to the client and their CDM-C (Construction Design Management Co-ordinator), responsible for advising the client on the suitability of our methods from a Health & Safety point of view. The works were carried out to plan without a hitch and 20 lifts were completed in 75 minutes with loads of up to 2.5 tonnes being moved. We still have twelve months to run on this project and plenty more challenges to face but we can look forward with confidence knowing we have the right team for the job.
