RPC MANUFACTURES JACKING PIPE AND PERMA-MANHOLES FOR QUU BULIMBA SEWER
Queensland Urban Utilities (QUU) is constructing a new AU$55 million sewer on the outskirts of Brisbane’s CBD. Once the project has been completed, the utility has said the sewer will be the longest pipe jack using glass reinforced pipe (GRP) in Australia. RPC Technologies manufactured the GRP Perma-Manholes and RPC Pipe Systems has manufactured the jacking pipe. The 4.25 km sewer main is known as the Bulimba Creek Sewer Upgrade Stage 2.
An Australian-Japanese joint venture (JV), comprising of Abergeldie Constructions Pty Ltd and Obayashi Corporation, was appointed to design and construct the upgrade.
