  • Frialen Electrofusion Fittings - FRIALEN electrofusion fittings are manufactured by our sister company Friatec and GPS PE Pipe Systems are their sole UK distributor. The unique design of FRIALEN electrofusion fittings incorporates exposed heating coils to provide consistent heat transfer during fusion and to achieve maximum bonding between the materials. FRIALEN fittings are lightweight, resistant to corrosion, have excellent chemical durability and exceptional fusibility.
  • Pupped Fittings - Ease of pipe system installation by electrofusion and butt-fusion can be greatly assisted on-site with the use of pupped fittings. We make a wide range of Pupped Fittings featuring extended spigots in various sizes made from either Excel (PE100) Black/Blue or PE80 Yellow.
  • Long Spigot Fittings - Long Spigot Fittings are suitable for electrofusion and on-site butt-fusion without any additional pupping needed (provided that machines with narrow clamps are used). Long Spigot fittings are available in SDR11 and SDR17/17.6, in sizes from 315mm to 630mm (dependent on fitting) and come in a wide range of shapes.

Aliaxis - Bespoke Solutions for Gas Directional Drilling

November 2021

Sector: Gas
Product: Excel (PE100)
Client: McCormack Drilling
Contractor: Derry, Ireland

We have once again pushed the boundaries of pipeline manufacturing, after producing a bespoke solution for a £3m project to construct a new gas mains pipeline underneath the River Foyle, in one of the largest directional drilling gas projects ever undertaken in Ireland.

Firmus Energy embarked on the project to consolidate the gas supply on the cityside of Derry, which was only served by a single gas supply crossing the Craigavon Bridge. Offering security for the existing network, along with catering for growing network capacity for new developments, the completion of this project has ensured the safe provision of gas to more than 10,000 households.

There were very specific requirements for the pipeline for this project, as it needed to be a high quality, robust solution able to withstand the rigours of Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) installation. Once commissioned, it then needed to be capable of maintaining its performance when fully operational at 50m deep under the water level of the River Foyle.

The 660 metre pipe was to cross the River Foyle from the Thornhill area of the Cityside to Strathfoyle in the Waterside and specialist drilling contractor, McCormack Drilling, was tasked with the design and construction of the pipeline.

Due to the nature of the application, our technical support team was brought in at the specification stage to provide advice and recommendations on the design of the pipeline. Due to the concerns of the long term structural stability of the pipeline, a thicker pipe than is normally used for the transportation of fuel gas was needed, with 355mm SDR 7.4 Orange PE pipe specified. As a size not previously used in the gas industry, we were the only manufacturer with the capabilities to manufacture, test and provide the levels of technical and practical understanding needed for the supply of this specific pipe.

McCormack Drilled a 660mm diameter hole through weathered schist and rock 50m under the river bed in preparation for the pipe. The pipe was laid out using Thornhill College school grounds and joined using butt fusion welding to ensure a robust joint that would stand the test of time and the strains of installation under the river bed.

Utilising school grounds to lay the pipe prior to installation meant that there was a very specific timeframe for the installation as access to the school grounds could not be blocked during the week. As a result, the pipeline was moved into position at the weekend and pulled though the hole under the river in one continuous 10-hour operation overnight, to minimise disruption to the local community.

Looking at where efficiencies could be made in terms of logistics and installation, we produced the pipe in 13.5 metre lengths, instead of the standard 12 metre length. Reducing the number of pipe lengths for the project minimised the number of deliveries needed, reducing transport costs and cutting carbon emissions. In addition to the logistic benefits, a lower number of pipe lengths also reduced the number of butt fusion joints required, to increase joint integrity on the pipe and aid the speed of installation.

Commenting on the project, Fintan McCusker from McCormack Drilling said: “The complexities of this project meant that there was very specific requirements for the pipeline. The GPS technical support team provided excellent guidance and recommendations regarding the design and then had the manufacturing capabilities to produce this bespoke size pipe for us. Ourselves and the client visited the GPS factory to see the pipe being manufactured and speak to the operations team about the pipe performance, which offered us the reassurance that the pipe would meet, and indeed exceed, the specific criteria for this project.”

Aiaxis - Protecta-Line the safe choice for energy plant

November 2021


Sector: Contaminated Land
Product: Protecta-Line
Client: Teeside
Contractor: Thermofuse Pipelines

A new £160m renewable energy plant on Teeside has turned to our Protecta-Line barrier pipe for the safe transportation of water on the site.

Port Clarence Renewable Energy Plant will provide 40MW of energy through the combustion of waste wood, generating electricity for the equivalent of 75,000 homes across the Tees Valley and wider North East region. The new plant will have the capacity to process 325,000 tonnes of waste wood per year from construction, demolition and civic amenity sites.

The power station is being constructed on the Clarence Works site, which has a long history of heavy industry and port related works. Although the land has been derelict for many years, its previous use was a steel production site and workshop, with its long and complex industrial history also including chemical manufacturing, iron works and oil and gas refining and storage.

Preliminary risk assessments of the site found elevated levels of soil and groundwater contamination. As a result, careful consideration needed to be given to the pipework system installed to cater for potable water applications to ensure there is no risk of the water supply becoming contaminated.

Following further site investigations, the developer stipulated that a barrier pipe must be used for the potable water supply and tasked Thermofuse Pipelines with sourcing and installing a safe and reliable solution. Looking for a product that has a proven track record in transporting water through contaminated land, Thermofuse Pipelines turned to our Protecta-Line barrier pipe system.

As part of the construction project, 700 metres of 63mm Protecta-Line has been installed to transport potable water from the boundary to the office building to ensure safe drinking water is supplied to the personnel working on site in the offices.

Barrier pipe has also been installed to serve the fire hydrant ring main, with 1,200 metres of 160mm Protecta-Line conveying water from the boundary to the ring main that runs around the site for fire protection. As the fire hydrant ring main will not be used frequently, it is vital that the required flow levels are available when called upon and any contamination of the water could attack the pipe and cause damage, which would restrict the flow of water in the event of a fire. Protecta-Line not only ensures that the water remains clean, but the smooth bore of the internal PE pipe also resists corrosion and limescale build-up, offering further reassurance that flow levels will be maintained over the lifetime of the system.

Due to the land being derelict and currently unused, there were no restrictions on the installation technique used, with the Protecta-Line laid using open cut methods, with a combination of butt fusion and electrofusion joints ensuring that the system is securely jointed.

Commenting on the project, Paul Hurst from Thermofuse Pipelines said: “Due to the confirmed elevated levels of contamination on this site, we needed to be confident we were installing a barrier pipe system that would reliably transfer safe drinking water, without any risk of permeation. With a proven track record of successful installations in similar applications, Protecta-Line was the ideal choice.

“The performance benefits of Protecta-Line were clear to us but it was the service we received from GPS that was the deciding factor. From the initial enquiry through to delivery, we received fantastic support to ensure we ordered the correct pipe, which was then delivered to site quickly and efficiently.”

Available in sizes up to 630mm, Protecta-Line is a fully approved integrated barrier pipe and fittings system. Its tough multi-layer construction incorporates an impermeable aluminium barrier layer wrapped onto a central core of PE80 or Excel (PE100) pipe to ensure that any contaminants remaining in brownfield sites and former industrial land cannot permeate into the water supply. The original barrier pipe system, Protecta-Line has been trusted by water companies, contractors and installers for more than 20 years.
