Spencer Street Update: Hobas Pre-Fabricated Manholes installed

This week was a big week for the Spencer Street project with the successful installation of the first Hobas GRP-Manhole taking place at a depth of 6m. The site is on the corner of Flinders Lane and Spencer Street in Melbourne’s CBD so access is difficult.

The manholes were pre-fabricated at Hobas HQ, ensuring factory tolerances and specifications, and craned into position to meet up with OD1499 CC-GRP Hobas Jacking Pipe. An Arpol W5 Mechanical Coupling was used to make the connection. Global Pipe’s team of engineers provided dedicated technical support from the beginning of this project through to on-site support during the delivery and installation phase.
