Fred Thomas wastewater upgrade Auckland

Project Owner: Watercare, Auckland
Project Head Contractor: HARKER
Project: Supply of 80m DN650 HOBAS CC-GRP Jacking Pipe, SN50,000

The Takapuna-Devonport area is almost ready to see a reduction in wet-weather overflows as construction on Watercare’s $30 million Fred Thomas Drive Wastewater Upgrade nears completion.

Global Pipe supplied a solution for this complex project working with Harker to deliver a new wastewater pipeline between Karaka Street and Esmonde Road. Due to the pipeline’s location, aligned with Esmonde Rd, the contractor Harker was required to pilot bore the new HOBAS CC-GRP Pipeline. Global Pipe managed the supply and delivery of 80m of DN650 HOBAS CC-GRP Jacking pipe, SN50,000.

Installation of the new HOBAS CC-GRP Jacking pipe progressed smoothly without any disruptions. The installation will reduce diluted wastewater entering the local environment in the future.
