Durapipe updates fuel delivery to emergency generators in Leeds
As part of an upgrade to the fuel-supply system for No 1 City Square in Leeds, Durapipe PLX has been installed to transport fuel to the emergency generators of this 11-storey office building. This specialist pipework is made from a robust polyethylene material with excellent resistance to long-term stress and cracking and was preferred over metal alternatives such as steel.
The new fuel-delivery system was installed in response to health-and-safety issues. Previously, barrels of oil were carried into the basement before being manually pumped through the pipework system to feed the emergency generators.
The 40/25 mm PLX pipe-in-pipe system transports fuel for the car-park entrance on the upper ground floor to storage tanks in the basement and on to the generators via a 35 m run of pipework.
The system was installed by AD Environmental.
