Grain LNG

With a sprawling expanse over 600 acres on the Isle of Grain, Kent, Grain LNG stands as Europe’s largest gas import terminal, placing a paramount emphasis on safety. Broadland Group has diligently collaborated with the Grain LNG team since 2017.

Grain LNG is the largest gas import terminal in Europe, covering 600 acres on the Isle of Grain, Kent. Safety is obviously of primary concern when working in such an environment and Broadland Group has worked closely with the team at Grain LNG to ensure we provide our services in accordance not only with the latest asbestos guidance and best practice, but with the stringent site safety rules at all times.

Since 2017 we have been helping Grain LNG fulfil its obligations with regards to CAR 2012 via management surveys and subsequent annual inspections, asbestos training for site staff, and project management of asbestos removal works as well as providing advice and guidance whenever required.

Work undertaken

  • Initial management survey of all pre-2000 buildings
  • Annual reinspection of all asbestos materials on site
  • Hosting of client’s asbestos register with portal access
  • Ad-hoc refurbishment surveys
  • Specification of Works for remedial projects
  • Management of remediation works to completion
  • Air monitoring
  • Emergency response
  • Advice and guidance
  • Asbestos Awareness and Non-licensed Work with Asbestos training

“Grain LNG have successfully worked with the Broadland Group as our specialist consultants for asbestos over a number of years now.  The terminal is a unique mix of old and new infrastructure constructed on top of what was a refinery, consequently we have large areas of potentially contaminated ground that can potentially pose a risk to health during extensive ground disturbance or excavation works.  They work closely with the terminal to provide both technical expertise and advice, but also to ensure that we demonstrate compliance with CAR2012 through our asbestos risk register and management plan – working with us to overcome any issues whilst maintaining their independence and professionalism.”
