North Cotes, East Lindsey, Lincolnshire. A view of the launch of the Northcoates pipeline, showing lifting equipment in the foreground.
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. The launch of the pipeline took place at 12.30 on 16th June 1970 and took 3hrs to complete. At this time, it was the largest sea pipeline to be placed off the British coast

1970s Civil Engineering Construction People Pipeline Work


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in the construction of the Northcoates oil pipeline in Lincolnshire, England. The image showcases the launch of this monumental sea pipeline, with an array of lifting equipment dominating the foreground. The civil engineering work on this ambitious project was undertaken by Laing Pipelines, collaborating with French companies Entrepose and GTM. Meanwhile, Dredging and Construction Company, along with Adriaan Volker of Rotterdam, were responsible for the crucial dredging work required for its installation. On June 16th, 1970 at precisely 12:30 pm, history was made as the Northcoates pipeline embarked on its journey into the depths of the ocean. This remarkable feat took three hours to complete and marked a milestone in British offshore infrastructure development. It is worth noting that during this era, this particular pipeline held distinction as being one of Britain's largest sea pipelines ever constructed. Its significance cannot be understated as it represented a major advancement in oil transportation technology. This photograph not only documents an extraordinary engineering achievement but also offers a glimpse into the dedication and hard work put forth by countless individuals involved in bringing this vision to life. It stands as a testament to human ingenuity and innovation within the realm of civil engineering during the dynamic 1970s era.
