The Hunter Water Sewer Relining project located in Newcastle, NSW, has made promising headway as of mid-May 2022. Wilmot Pipelining has completed several sewer relining projects for the water industry company.
Its lining team utilised the Brandenburger BBS.8 Liner to install new UV maintenance hole liners on several sites. The Brandenburger BBS.8 was the first UV maintenance hole liner on the market which adapts top to the prevailing manhole geometry, making it the most time effective method of manhole rehabilitation.
More success has similarly been seen in Muswellbrook, NSW, approximately 127km north-west of Newcastle. The Water Main Renewal Program, issued by the Muswellbrook Shire Council, included the rehabilitation of the Forbes Street, Lorne Street and Turanville Avenue reticulation mains. As of mid-May 2022, Wilmot has successfully rehabilitated 26 failing assets ranging from DN300 – DN900 pipes varying in length and distance from each access chamber. The project was completed in accordance with the established budget and within set time constraints, additionally managing to be completed with minimal disturbances to the residential community.
The Brandenburger B22.5 Liners were installed on location to ensure the highest quality and connections.
Likewise, in South West NSW stormwater rehabilitation and relining works are securely underway. Structural UV relining of up to 46 stormwater culverts is set to begin pit-to-pit across a total of seven suburbs in high density residential areas.
Wilmot is aiming to have similar success in completing the project within minimal disturbances to residents as seen in Muswellbrook. One of the Wilmot lining crews have already completed a package of stormwater rehabilitations, pit builds and modifications.
In 2004 founder of Wilmot Civil, Andrew Wilmot, began a role in the wastewater treatment sector. Keeping our waterways clean and pollutant free became a real passion for Andrew. There, as his understanding of the importance of keeping Australia’s waterways pollution free dawned on him, Wilmot began to think of what more he could do for the industry.
It was while contracting pipe bursting to upgrade sewer mains across Australia in 2006, that Wilmot’s ambition to establish his own company specialising in trenchless technologies took root.
In 2012, after continuing his work in civil construction and commercial plumbing and drainage, he established Wilmot Civil in 2012. The company officially kicked off in Newcastle, NSW, initially offering house service lining and small-scale civil pipeline construction as well as point line repairs. Wilmot Civil began working on significantly larger scale projects for local councils and utilities in 2015 and began trading as Wilmot Pipelining shortly thereafter.
While 90 per cent of projects the company was delivering were relining and pipe rehabilitation, the business expanded its offerings to the market so there could be a trenchless solution for every asset type and situation. In 2018, Wilmot Pipelining invested in UV cured-in-place (CIP) technology and have since established reliable rehabilitation service with this technology. As well as expanding into wastewater rehabilitation of maintenance holes, Wilmot has also expanded its trenchless offerings with investments in spiral wound and slip lining technologies.
Accredited under the International Organisation for Standardisation (IS0), 9001 quality management systems, 14001 environmental management systems as well as 45,001 occupational health and safety systems, Wilmot conveys a clear commitment to quality products and customer service. Wilmot has experienced an upward trajectory of success since it was established, particularly over the last two years. With promising updates on a multitude of different projects across NSW and Australia, Wilmot’s continued success is no surprise.
