Die Draw Ltd are extremely proud to be part of a winning team to be awarded the prestigious Pipeline Industry Guild “Utility Pipeline Project” Award
The complex project involved 7 months of collaboration between Thames Water, Agility Alliance, Morrison Water Services & Die Draw Ltd to install 500m of PE100 liner into 36” 150-year-old cast iron main in London. The location in a highly built-up area with heavy traffic presented unique challenges requiring selection of a technology that minimized installation size and footprint, while maximizing flow post-installation. The Die Draw technique was used to temporarily reduce liner diameter during installation. A 100te winch was located at 90° to the pipeline using sheaves to transfer the pull-in forces between two very close adjacent mains without risk of disturbance.
