Not far from the boulevard of Bordeaux, a drinking water cast iron pipeline was renovated with the help of the egeplast SLM® 3.0 protective pipe system using
the relining approach. Restricted space conditions and great time pressure placed particular demands on both the product and the installer.
In summer 2019, Suez Eau France needed a quick and sustainable solution for refurbishing a leaking 1000 mm cast iron drinking water pipe. The local utility company, SUEZ Eau France, is one of the biggest water suppliers in France,
which in the metropolitan region of Bordeaux alone supplies water to more than 750,000 individuals. The pipeline was installed in the course of major road construction works. The drinking water pipe was located directly in the centre of Bordeaux, close to its main boulevard.
In this context, the egeplast SLM® 3.0 drinking water pipe OD 800 was used. The SLM® pipe was inserted into the cast iron pipe by means of relining. The contractor, AXEO TP, renovated the pipe over a length of 330 m.
