In the Perth suburb of Maddington, a severely degraded Pitch Fibre pipe was at risk of collapse and required urgent remediation, however its unique condition meant that our standard portfolio of trenchless solutions was not suitable.
To solve our customer’s problem, our WA team delivered a custom-designed solution to re-shape the pipe, which enabled renewal works to commence. They experimented with several pieces of purpose-built equipment, developing a re-rounding prototype featured in the image gallery below.
Once this method was tried and tested by our crew members, they deployed it to Maddington, where they successfully re-rounded 3 trial lines of the collapsed and deformed pipe.
Water Corp was delighted with our team’s ability to reline the deformed pipe without the use of excavation and with minimal impact on the surrounding community. They are currently in the process of awarding further contracts to repair the remaining Pitch Fibre pipes in their network!
