The scope of the works was to install 170m x 800mm pressure UV liner using the Alpha Liner from Reline Europe. This was between Fishguard Way and The Royal Docks.
The objective of the main work is for the remediation of the pressure main from Store Road pumping station. After a recent burst in the area where the know location of the burst would block the only access route into a large residential estate an open cut repair wasn’t feasible. Therefore the solution was to excavation two pits 170m apart and install a pressure UV liner between these points, capable of withstanding pressures varying between 12bar and -0.9bar (almost full vacuum).
