One of three projects delivered by Comdain under the SMP to upgrade urban channels with a pipeline and pump station (while providing customers with continuous supply of water) and removal of the existing channel and bridges.

Works Undertaken

  • 1.3km DN2000 GRP pipeline
  • 2.7km DN1000 GRP pipeline
  • Installation of associated valve assemblies and 13 cluster pits
  • 120ml / day pump station
  • Decommissioning / backfilling of 5kms of irrigation channel
  • Removal of 11 road crossing bridges / culverts

Highlights & Innovations

  • Comdain’s innovation workshops developed a more cost effective solution for the client by utilising the existing pump station instead of a new one with higher capacity and constructing a smaller booster pump station midway along the pipeline.
  • Completed milestone 8 four weeks ahead of schedule with 2,000m of pipeline installed and early commencement of pump station construction.
