Read the Case Study
A national LUKOIL Bulgaria EOOD project to replace old heavy hinged cast iron manhole covers on forecourts with Fibrelite lightweight GRP composite manhole covers. This project was supplied by SisCo-M Ltd and undertaken due to corrosion and deterioration of the previously installed metal covers, which were becoming increasingly dangerous for operators and site owners.
LUKOIL’s previously installed metal manhole covers had become rusted over time, with hinge mechanisms beginning to fail and covers becoming unsafe for operators and site owners to remove and replace. The seal, around the covers were also damaged allowing water ingress. A safe long-term liquid-tight solution was required.
Fibrelite provided LUKOIL with corrosion-free lightweight composite manhole covers. Being watertight and safely manually removable, these covers were the perfect solution to solve LUKOIL’s manual handling challenges.
Fibrelite FL76 covers require minimal maintenance and perform for the life of the site, making them a “fit and forget” solution. A rapid design to delivery process, and a responsive local distribution network also guarantee fast turnaround times.
