Wallace St Pipe Bursting


A great week here at GPFL as we completed our pipe bursting programme on Wallace St. 430m of online renewals completed by pipe bursting the existing 150 Cast Iron main with a new 180OD PE100 SDR11 pipe.

These bursts were completed using a Grundoburst 800G static pipe bursting tool - by TRACTO-TECHNIK GmbH & Co. KG - with a splitting blade capable of pulling with up to 800kN of force.

The work has been completed with Brian Perry Civil and ECS and on behalf of Wellington Water. As part of the Omaroro Reservoir pipelines project.
