Steel Pipe Welding
Quality control, certified inspection, trained staff and attention to detail are key to installing steel pipe that will last for its full design life.
Components of a quality installation include; inspecting the condition of the supplied pipe and making any repairs, certifying the application of the coating system, using experienced and qualified welders, third party testing of welds, using trained and experienced wrappers with a high-quality tape coat system and third-party cathodic protection testing before resealing of the road.
- Experienced and qualified welders
- Experienced and trained wrappers including wrapping peel test equipment.
- Various welding and ancillary equipment associated with steel pipe installation
This project invlved laying and welding 2500m of 508 NB concrete lined steel pipe, mainly through busy level 2 roads and major signalled and roundabout intersections on the Northshore, from Albany Reservoir to Pinehill Reservoir and impacted on New Zealand’s largest school, Rangitoto College. This required careful planning and management to minimise the impact on traffic, especially where the pipeline crossed each intersection along East Coast Bays Road. Our client benefited from our constructability advice through better pipe alignments which avoided services and reduced the impact on traffic. The works involved installation of various air, scour and line val ves and service relocations.
