The North of England has long been famous for not just its wonderful landscapes, world renowned cities and the character of its people, it is also globally recognised as a major centre in the growth of the industrial economies we see today. Whilst like many parts of the UK the region has had its ups and downs alongside the vagaries of the economy it still boasts some of the UK’s largest industrial facilities.

Not least of these is a major soft drinks manufacturing plant which was recently the site of a challenging pipeline rehabilitation project undertaken by DALROD, a family run drainage industry service provider established in Peterborough in 1985. The project was completed using the BRAWOLINER® HT CIPP liner system, supplied by the UK Brawoliner distributor C.J. Kelly Associates of Peterborough. The project had apparently been looked at by other rehabilitation contractors but dismissed as not possible using currently available techniques.

Sewer lining specialist DALROD Cambridgeshire was recently involved in a technically challenging project to keep water flowing to a major cement works in Essex, UK.  The site is part of an industrial development in the mined out area of what is still elsewhere a working quarry site, investigations showed that the pipes which carried away fresh water between to two lakes was in need of rehabilitation. However, the fact that the site was industrialised with other operations as well as the cement mixing works, meant that operating conditions for any rehabilitation works would be far from easy.

The client expressly demanded that the rehabilitation be completed in a set timeframe with all traffic management being undertaken by the contractor and most of all that not only during the rehabilitation works but subsequently there should be no pollution created by the products used to complete the works.
