Sydney Water has committed to servicing two major growth areas within the St Marys Wastewater System catchment by mid-2015. These are part of the existing rezoned Western Sydney Employment Area (WSEA) to the south and Jordan Springs Residential Village to the north of the St Marys Water Recycling Plant (WRP).
UEA has completed and recently commissioned its longest ever HDD bore tracked via a DigiTrak F5Walkover Tracking System. The bore has the potential to be the longest of its kind completed using this type of bore location technology in Australia.
The UEA Trenchless Division has obtained accreditation for NSW Government Work Health and Safety Management Systems and Auditing Guidelines – 5th Edition.
UEA staff will receive a valuable formal qualification in their field, providing with the knowledge and skills in trenchless technology to ensure the highest standard of work is produced on future trenchless technology projects involving HDD, tunnelling and pipe bursting.
UEA Trenchless has successfully reached the revised half way point of transfer main installation works and is well on the way to having the directional drilling works for the PSP Appin Wastewater Scheme completed on time. Further to the contract works awarded earlier this year UEA has been asked to undertake an additional 2,006 metres of directional drilling due to changes in design requirements as well as several areas of environmental sensitivity.
Installation of the transfer main pipeline as part of the Appin Wastewater Scheme is almost complete with UEA successfully pulling in the final directional bore in early February 2012.
