From April to September 2013, McElligotts was contracted to work on the Kangaroo Valley pipeline by the Sydney Catchment Authority. It was a large job involving a complete strip and relining of a 1.8Km long, 2.6m wide pipeline.
The pipeline had only two access points, which definitely brought some hurdles throughout the project. Our initial work was to remove the old vinyl ester coating from the steel before abrasive blasting with our robotic blaster system. All waste from the old coating had to be safely removed from the pipeline using a commercial vacuum system. Once the required profile was created, we relined the piping with a solvent-less epoxy lining with robotic spraying equipment. Learn more about our specialised coating application services.
