Gas Projects


The design, supply and installation of LPGas is a well regulated and legislated industry. Our safety record is high and lake GPS , all gas projects must be submitted for approval prior to installation.

In all cases we compile a full handover file with all legally required approvals , certification, testing and commissioning document. This give the customer the the insurance companies the pease of mind that the infrastructure is safe and will last for years.


STEYN CITY – CITY CENTRE






The Steyn City - City Centre project consist of a multi-story housing development with apartments and commercial premises where gas will be used for hot water generation , space heating and cooking. This first phase of construction are due for occupation 2021. Gas mains are required from both sides of the service mains for the first 295 apartments

The Gas supply is from a LPGas mains fed from a remote storage facility covering the whole Steyn City development.

The gas infrastructure consist of mains steel piping in the service tunnels below the building , which feeds various cores that rises in the centre of each block.  Gas is measured via approved meters that is installed in the tunnels before the riser into the cores. The steel vertical feeds in the cores supplies gas into the ceilings of the corridors to various shafts next to the apartments.

The shafts houses the gas geysers and gas meters with piping feeding the gas appliances inside each apartment.

Overall GPS will install 10 973m of steel Piping, 200m HDPE Piping, 7 351m of PEX –AL-PEX Piping, 61 x Gas Braai’s, 295 x Gas Hobs, 302 x Gas Geysers, 295 x Gas G4 Meters and 10 x Gas Bulk Meters for the first phase of this project.


STEYN CITY - NORTHERN EXPANSION


Northern Expansion is an extension to the current Steyn City infrastructure that consist of new access roads and services to the northern area of Steyn City.

GPS has been appointed to install 1 530m of HDPE Piping and fittings underground. All fittings will be electrofusion welded. The installed piping and fittings will 9 of the future development stands in Steyn City development complex.

In terms of the Pressure Equipment Regulation of the OHS Act 85 of 1993 all the piping are subjected to a pressure test , witnessed by an AIA (Authorized Inspection Authority) and QCP’s are part of the normal process.

The gas supply point for the School development will be the mains piping supplying the Steyn City development.

GPS have installed 651m of HDPE Piping and fittings underground. All fittings are electrofusion welded and complies to the SANS standards and the Pressure Equipment Regulation.




104 ON CREEK – STEYN CITY






One of the top developments on Steyn City development is the prestigious 104 on Creek.

The 105 units consist out of 4 housing blocks. Each housing type will have the same gas infrastructure and will be linked to the mains piping in the roads. The gas supply will be metered through a pre-paid billing system with the water and electricity. The meters are all situated in service shafts of each unit to allow ease of access to all meters.

Each unit is equipped with the best international gas geyser and gas hob.The gas supply point for the housing development is via the mains piping supplying the Steyn City development.


ZEBRA PROJECT – EKLAND SAFARI – LOUIS TRIGHARDT


The Zebra project is the staff accommodation for a large international delegation that consists of 10 x Staff Houses, main canteen and Laundry.  Each housing type will have the same gas infrastructure and will be linked to the mains piping in the roads.

GPS have installed 62 x Gas Geysers to supply hot water to the respective Houses, Canteen and Laundry. GPS installed of 3 off 10x10 LPGas manifolds including electric vapourizers to supply the Houses, Canteen and Laundry with LPGas through HDPE underground reticulation.




TIME SQUARE CASINO – LP GAS STORAGE AND PIPING TO FULL COMPLEX




The first elevated buried LPGas bulk storage site approved in SA. This LP Gas project under Easigas supplies gas to the 18 restaurants inside this Sun International multi billion Casino. LP Gas Training was given to 120 staff to ensure safe use of LPGas.

All schedule 40 steel piping at 6 floors and various shafts was tig welded and tested to SANS standards. All restaurants was fitted with gas meters linked to the BMS and the bulk storage area is protected by the Liquitel gas detection system with tank level monitoring to Easigas control room.

A SLA was agreed with Time Square casino to ensure routine maintenance of the full gas infrastructure.


EXCELSIOR PAINTS - HAZARDOUS CHEMICAL STORAGE


This plant has upgrade to a large flammable liquid store , as well as legal compliant flammable bulk storage of Resins , Solvents and other chemicals products.

The plant included full chemical detection system linked to a new plant ventilation system to ensure staff safety.

The project client, Zenprop required full legal compliance of the building and plant to ensure low risk insurance.

This 1st phase of the upgrade allowed Imperial paint to use this as a marketing project to gain further market share in this competitive market.




SASOL HEAD QUARTERS - SANDTON




Sasol's centralization required a unique building in the business hub of Africa.

LPGas was supplied to all the facilities including to 10th floor executive kitchen.
