One of four large water distribution mains that run through the south-west London borough, the Kew to Hampton main spans the four kilometres from Hampton Water Treatment Works to Kew Bridge works. Originally constructed in the 1890s, the main has failed in several locations during the past few years causing localised flooding and disruption. Indeed, a major burst in Brentford in September 2010 caused severe flooding and disruption and was one of two bursts to happen within the space of just a month.

To address this issue, Morrison Construction has been contracted to re-line the existing 33” main and selected 710mm OD (SDR17) PE 100 pipe from GPS PE Pipe Systems. The highly durable and crack/scratch resistant pipe provides the 10 bar operating pressure required for the installation and was supplied with a number of fixings including mitred bends in three different sizes and 56 Frialen couplers for electrofusion of pipe joints.

In order to minimise disruption during the works, Morrison inserted the new pipe into the existing pipe using welding pits dug at the end of each re-lined section, enabling traffic routes to remain operational while the work was underway. Straight sections of pipe were butt-fused together to form strings for each section of the main and these were inserted into the Victorian pipe to provide a hardwearing replacement main which is structurally supported by the host pipe. Each section was then electrofused together using Frialen couplers to provide a strong and water-tight bond.

Explains Peter Birbaumer from Morrison Construction: “The integrity of the pipe and the seals at each of the joints is extremely important in a project of this nature because it’s essential that we resolve any potential for leaks and bursts. It was for this reason that we assigned a highly trained team of operatives to install the electrofusion fittings as this method of sealing together sections of the main is the most effective approach provided that the task is performed expertly. We have now successfully installed all 3.5 km of PE pipe and completed 54 Frialen coupler joints ensuring that, with a little help from modern technology, the Victorian main will be good for another century.”
