Asset Owner: Yarra Valley Water
Client: Viadux
Contractor: Califam Constructions Pty Ltd

Project Scope: Supplying 788m of DN675 HOBAS CC-GRP Open Cut Pipe (PN1, SN10,000) and 106m x DN675 HOBAS CC-GRP Jacking Pipe (PN1, SN32,000)

Project Background:
Located at Wollert in Melbourne’s outer northern suburbs, the Love Branch sewer is being built to service the western section of the new Aurora housing development. The sewer is one of five separate branch sewers that will extend north from existing developments south of Craigieburn East Road to service the precinct.

Project Planning:
 Global Pipe worked with Viadux and Califam Constructions to assess the project requirements and create a seamless transition from planning and specification, to construction and project delivery. Global Pipe’s expert team studied the feasibility of the project, to determine the use of HOBAS CC-GRP Pipe. After reviewing the project’s specifications, Global Pipe found a solution targeted to the project and then detailed the logistical solutions which would ensure the success of the project.

Manufacturing and Qualification: HOBAS Pipe Systems are certified to international standards from ISO, TUV, EN, and ISO9001. To meet these standards, stringent manufacturing inspection and testing were carried out, including raw material qualification, stiffness testing and dimensional verification.

Supply and Logistics:
 Global Pipe provided a complete transport, freight logistics, warehousing and distribution solution to supply the Hobas products.

Project Management and Supervision:
 Global Pipe’s team of engineers will provide dedicated technical support throughout the project lifecycle – ensuring engineering challenges were dealt with immediately to minimise risk and maximise peace-of-mind for all stakeholders.

Training and Support:
 Global Pipe provided Califam with comprehensive product support, product technical training information to installers and project supervisors. Global Pipe is also supported by the expansive engineering resources of our international manufacturers HOBAS.
