Nouvelle Caledonie is an idyllic group of Islands in the Western Pacific, 1,500km west of Australia, nearly 2,000km north of New Zealand with all of the inherent requirements of a modern progressive community.
Surrounded by the Pacific, reticulation of the Islands available potable water is of major importance. With significant leakage from the existing pipe system becoming intolerable, Caledonian Des Eaux contacted Worldpoly, who in turn provided 160mm, 250mm & 315mm butt welding machines, and the services of its technical manager to establish the training facility on site.
The resultant fully welded system reduced water losses in the replaced sections to zero, giving the Authority confidence to replace all water pipe in the system. “The equipment is faultless”, said the GM of Caledonian Des Eaux, “but it is the training, support and advice which has been supplied by Worldpoly which has been of the greatest value.”
