Ham Baker Pipelines supplies £300M wastewater environmental improvement scheme

Posted: Friday 14th December 2012

Ham Baker Pipelines, specialist manufacturers of ductile iron fabricated pipe and fittings, has supplied products from its Fittosize Grip range to a major £300M wastewater treatment works in East Sussex for Southern Water.

Products including flange adaptors, couplings and step couplings in sizes ranging from DN350mm to DN1400mm have been installed at the Peacehaven Wastewater Treatment Works which is situated at Lower Hoddern Farm.

Installed as part of the washwater and service water ring main systems at the site, a total of 14 NP16 x 500mm PE Fittosize end restraint flange adaptors are connecting the polyethylene pipeline arrangement to the valves and ductile iron pipework.

Alan Faherty, senior engineer for 4Delivery – the main contractor on the project, said: “The Fittosize flange adaptors were an easy choice for this project due to their cost effectiveness and off-the-shelf availability. The couplings also do not need specialist tools and were easy to install on site.”

Darren Wood, general sales manager for Ham Baker Pipelines, said: “We were very pleased to be selected for this prestigious environmental improvement scheme which is an important project for the South East.”

The team from Ham Baker worked closely with Engineers from 4Delivery and Southern Water on the specification and selection of products for the project.
