new products & services 154 APRIL 2012 water water business HOBAS Achieves Australian First With Pipe-In-Pipe Relining HOBAS has also played an integral role in a $130 million sewer upgrade at Bulimba and Oxley Creek in Queensland, providing a pipe-in-pipe relining application to rehabilitate the ageing concrete assets. With the original concrete pipes debilitated and eroded due to years of gas attack, HOBAS was chosen for its structural integrity, corrosive-resistant properties and 100+ year life expectancy. 1360m of HOBAS pipe was installed to reline the Oxley Creek sewer system, while 1280m was used to reline the Bulimba network. Andy Holman, managing director of Global Pipe and Australia's exclusive HOBAS supplier, said the use of the technologically superior HOBAS GRP pipe would help improve the capacity of the current wastewater system and better support the waterways in times of flooding or high water. "Not only did this project achieve an Australian first for HOBAS by implementing HOBAS pipe-in-pipe relining for the very first time on Australian shores, it has also created an improved and fully-sealed sewer system with a greater hydraulic capacity," he says. HOBAS is preferred internationally due to its high corrosion resistance and 100-plus year life design. CONCRETE LINING OF CORRUGATED STEEL CULVERT UNDER HUME HIGHWAY ITS Trenchless has identified an innovative, patent-protected structural concrete lining system for renovating deteriorating and ageing man-entry pipelines, culverts and tunnels for water/wastewater, road and rail applications. Developed in and widely used throughout the UK, the award-winning Tunneline system is a simple in situ concrete lining technique utilising lightweight manhole accessible formwork and high- strength pressure injected concrete. ITS has recently entered into an exclusive long-term relationship with the M3 Group (the technology owners) to develop the Tunneline system throughout Australia. The first contract to be completed using this technology for VicRoads has given the asset a new 100-year lease of life and has eliminated the risk to Australia's most prominent highway from potential damage, had the culvert not been repaired. The system combines high-strength concrete with steel reinforcement and specialist pumping technology, together with an innovative bespoke formwork system. This results in the ability to install a pressure-placed compacted reinforced in situ concrete lining that PO Box 179 Islington NSW 2296 P 02 4907 8200 F 02 4969 4218 the odour management experts Providing odour control products and services to Australia for over 20 years, including: Consultation and expert advice on odour issues Evaluation and reporting on (sewer) odours Custom design of odour control systems Supply and installation of activated carbon systems Supply and installation of packaged and open bio lters Supply and installation of chemical dosing systems Supply and installation of odour neutralising spray systems Supply of McBerns vent lters and well washers Solve your odour problems ... call the experts today! www.odours.com.au Industry partners: Existing invert erosion.
