The Project

Browns Bay PVC Lined Concrete Pipe

Solo Plastics as one of the parties in a joint venture was asked to provide welding services for a Works Harker consortium. This involved tunnelling and inserting a PVC lined concrete pipe in Browns Bay on Aucklands North Shore.

The concrete pipe with a T lock PVC Liner was made by Hynds Pipe Systems and once installed Solo Plastics was employed to weld the jointing strips over each pipe joint. The two lines were some 1000 metres long involving about 400 joints.

The job was completed late 2006 and now operates as a large sewer detention tank for residents on the North Shore
