SOMI – Pembroke CCGT Power Station

Pembroke CCGT 2MWe natural gas-fired power station is the largest of its kind in the UK and the the largest gas-fired power station in Europe with a capacity of up to 2,160 MW, enough to supply around three million homes.

The Power Station was built on the site of a previously demolished oil-fired Power Station, and consists of five generating units, each rated at around 400 MW. The power station was officially opened on 19 September 2012.

There are five CCGT 400 MW modules, each with a 288 MWe Alstom gas turbine, heat recovery steam generator and steam turbine.

Our Client had the largest scope on the project, where our team were responsible of 3 separate contracts and required to create an integrated level 4 project schedules for full installation of piping, mechanical equipment, delivery schedules, fabrication and commissioning as well as cooling water house scope and a subcontractor interface for insulation and scaffold.

Reports were setup for all contracts and included s-curves and histograms for manpower, diameter inches welded, metres of piping and kg of mechanical assets installed on site by unit, area and overall comparing budgets, planned, earned and actuals measured against the baseline schedule using Primavera P6. Critical path and total/negative float was also required by the client on a weekly basis. This information was presented in weekly client and subcontractor meetings chaired by the planning team.

We also defined and developed the system for reporting expended hours on site for the scheduled activities, weekly project reports and co-ordination of interdepartmental reporting, daily hours/equipment reports to the client.

We setup the IT infrastructure to enable sharing of data, document control, email and communications systems as well as Primavera server integration to Microsoft Server 2008.
