eThekwini Water & Sanitation executed a 2000 km AC water pipe relay project in the city of Durban. Part of this exercise was executed with innovative Trenchless methods, like WAVIN’s Compact Pipe and Neofit.
A comprehensive feasibility study and ‘on site’ skills transfer program were co-sponsored by the Embassy of the kingdom of the Netherlands.
The results allowed the establishment of accepted standard in trenchless renovation methods for the municipality.
The program eventually led to the development of the ‘Centre of Expertise’, supporting the acceptance of innovative technologies.
It also provided WAVIN the first step into the South African market with their specialised infrastructure renewal product portfolio.
YMoS was the project development and management partner of the Trenchless Pilot Program.
The project was promoted by the Dutch Ambassador who demonstrated there was no need to open up roads any longer, by braking a spade!
