Launching the pipeline JLP01_10_00557

North Cotes, East Lindsey, Lincolnshire. A view from the shoreline showing the launch of the Northcoates pipeline, with lifting equipment at work including a floating sheerleg.
The civil engineering work on the Northcoates oil pipeline was carried out by Laing Pipelines along with French companies Entrepose and GTM, and the main contractor for the dredging work was Dredging and Construction Company along with Adriaan Volker of Rotterdam. Over two miles of 36 inch diameter pipeline, encased in concrete, was pulled out to sea in the Humber Estuary on 16th June 1970

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the momentous launch of the Northcoates pipeline in East Lindsey, Lincolnshire. From the shoreline, we are granted a breathtaking view of this engineering marvel taking shape. The image showcases an array of lifting equipment at work, including a floating sheerleg that adds to the grandeur of the scene. The construction project for this oil pipeline was a collaborative effort between Laing Pipelines and French companies Entrepose and GTM. Additionally, Dredging and Construction Company, along with Adriaan Volker of Rotterdam, played a crucial role as main contractors for the dredging work involved. On 16th June 1970, history was made as over two miles of concrete-encased pipeline with a diameter measuring 36 inches were meticulously pulled out to sea in the Humber Estuary. This remarkable feat not only showcased groundbreaking civil engineering techniques but also marked a significant milestone in securing oil supply during that era. Preserved within this print is an extraordinary testament to human ingenuity and perseverance from decades past. It serves as a reminder of our ability to conquer challenges through collaboration and innovation. Let us cherish such moments captured by Historic England Archive's lens as they continue to inspire future generations in their pursuit of progress and excellence.
