Morson Projects’ Ematics division were commissioned to conduct a site survey of the Dublin Port Tunnel’s network to investigate both the design concept, current performance and reliability of it’s infrastructure.
Tunnel Control, Data Communications & Electrical Subsystem Replacement
The 725 metre long Medway Tunnel is an immersed tube dual two‐lane tunnel with cut and cover approaches that was opened in 1996. As the proprietary control system had reached and of life and was no longer supported, a new SCADA control system was required to reduce risk of component failure.
Morson Projects were appointed by the National Grid to support them on the Heysham Operation Tripping Scheme (OTS), which identified the current and future need for additional generation sources to be incorporated into the Transmission System, in the North West 1 and North West 2 regions.
Morson Projects has a contract with the Axiom DSA alliance for the provision of engineering and design services. Via this agreement we have delivered a number of design related packages of work all of varying size and complexity. Morson Projects currently has a total of 18 multi-discipline engineers and designers seconded into client integrated project teams at Risley, Sellafield and Westlakes.
