Read the Case Study
Restrictions for underground rigid steel and GRP piping systems in earthquake prone areas meant that the replacement had to have flexible components to prevent the products breaking and become damaged when an earthquake occurs.
In Germany, approval of the construction material and type of construction is required. The products had to be certified by the ‘Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik’ (DIBt) who grant national technical approval.
KPS piping was installed and connected to Fibrelite tank chambers as the KPS semi flexible pipe system is unaffected against earth movements, whilst meeting the approval of the DIBt making it the perfect solution providing a flexible long-term secure system.
OPW supplied ENI Germany with a long lasting underground system capable of withstanding earth movements whilst meeting the German construction approval.
