Penstock Tower Emergency Culvert Reline – Hunter Valley
This past fortnight we have successfully installed Australia’s largest UV Cured In Place Liners ever installed for NSW Local Lands on the Hunter Valley Flood Mitigation Scheme. This project was fast-tracked due to the collapse of a section of the existing corrugated culvert in the floods in April, leaving a large and dangerous sink hole threatening to collapse the road.
The CIP liners arrived from Germany and our crews worked 24/7 for six straight days to install both liners. The installations themselves threw every possible curve ball at our crews, who responded magnificently, staying calm and calculated under extreme pressure. The curing of both liners was completed on Tuesday afternoon at 5:30pm after a six day around the clock operation.
We are all very proud and humbled by this achievement here at Wilmot.
