INNES ESTATE – TOWNSVILLE NORTH QUEENSLAND
A 4.0m diameter by 8.5m deep Fibreglass (FRP) wet well and 2.0m X 1.8m by 1.45m deep Fibreglass (FRP) valve pit were supplied for this project. The wet well was fitted with a 1.2m high dividing wall to form two separate pump chambers.
The use of Fibreglass (FRP) components significantly reduced the on site construction time and the costs associated with providing a safe work area in the excavation.
The inlet to the wet well was Ø600mm diameter Fibreglass (FRP) pipe with two 600mm knife gate valves and drop tubes to each chamber. The valve pit was fitted with Ø300mm pipe and valves for the rising mains and a Ø100mm scour line.
Challenging ground conditions were encountered on site being constructed in a sandy material adjacent to a creek. Dewatering and shoring were required. The use of Fibreglass (FRP) components significantly reduced the onsite construction time and the costs associated with providing a safe work area in the excavation.
Innes Estate was installed in 2007. A recent inspection shows no deterioration of the FRP vessel. See photos below.
