Water Corporation 450mm PE Wastewater Pressure Main Upgrade
Water Project: Water Corporation (Balingup WA)
Cape was engaged by the Water Corporation to install 450mm PE Wastewater Pressure Main pipeline.
The pipeline corridor passed through a Bush Forever site that is also a wetlands catchment.
To minimise the need for clearing and disturbance of potential acid sulphate soil, Cape’s EcoPlough was chosen as the most environmentally friendly option to install the pipeline underground. Cape achieved a first for WA by installing a large diameter, high wall thickness PE pipeline with a high degree of accuracy. Through the constant diligence of all involved, the Cape team accomplished the complicated project through a highly important sensitive ecosystem with no environmental impact.
Cape is proud to be the first in WA to install DN450 pipe via plough methodology which is a great engineering and innovation feet. To our knowledge this is also the first time pipe of this size has been ploughed in to grade for sewer/waste water applications within Australia.
