On a recent project in Western Australia, proactive CCTV inspections by Allpipe Technologies prevented a sink hole on a busy main road.
As a leading CCTV pipe inspection and pipeline rehabilitation company in Western Australia, Allpipe Technologies is no stranger to conducting underground asset audits by using the latest technology and methods to deliver tangible value for municipalities, authorities and private companies.
For such organisations, awareness and maintenance of underground assets has seen increased importance as it is not only vital to maintain an optimum level of service, but also to reduce the risk of disruption as much as possible.
With the support of SECA – a leading Australian supplier of equipment for the cleaning, inspection and rehabilitation of sewers and drains – Allpipe Technologies has been promoting and installing more than 1,000 QUICKLOCK systems throughout WA in the last year.
A cost-effective repair
Allpipe Technologies recently assisted with inspection services for the City of Subiaco, a suburb located in Perth. The suburb manages more than 100 km of pipeline, representing significant value for both the city and the thousands of residents and businesses within its boundaries.
On 10 March 2020, Allpipe Technologies deployed its CCTV inspection team to survey a storm water pipe located on a main road in one of the busiest intersections in Perth – which presented a void in the pipeline under the road reserve.
Allpipe Technologies Business Development Manager Morgan Caffrey says the inspection showed a visible void that, if left unnoticed, would cause the potential for a sink hole and environmental impact or disaster would be imminent.
“Subiaco City Council engineers investigated various rehabilitation technologies presented by Allpipe Technologies and decided that the QUICKLOCK was the most suitable to repair the defect in the most cost-effective way,” says Mr Caffrey.
“The QUICKLOCK is fast to install and has Australian approvals including a life expectancy in excess of 50 years.”
The following morning, Allpipe Technologies had already installed the DN300 QUICKLOCK with minimal disruption and traffic flowing as normal.
A dedicated pipeline rehabilitation team
The Allpipe Technologies team is trained by SECA to install the QUICKLOCK, ensuring a quality service and product every time.
Dedicated to safety and employee development, all crews have experience working at heights, confined space entry, gas test atmospheres, first aid and traffic management to ensure project delivery that clients can always trust.
