Buried Drinking Water Pipeline
- Coated / Lined
- Compressed Construction Schedule
- Cost and Schedule Certainty
- Ease of Installation
- Simplified System Maintenance
Collaboration efforts between Victaulic and Alvenius can be observed on a buried drinking water pipeline in Strängnäs, Sweden. For years, Victaulic pipe joining solutions have complemented Alvenius’ pipes enabling contractors to easily install piping systems that are cost-effective and reliable.
Victaulic grooved pipe joining solutions were selected to join the Alvenius piping system. Designed for direct bury, the contractor knew that the 16’’ (DN400) Victaulic AGS Grooved Couplings would deliver a safe, fast, and reliable installation, along with ease of maintenance for the life of the system. Victaulic’s Advanced Grooved System (AGS™) is the fastest and most reliable mechanical pipe joining system for pipe 14” and above. Joining the Alvenius pipe with the Victaulic AGS System required no welding, special licensing, or time-consuming training.
On this project, contractors were easily able to install the new piping system by excavating trenches, measuring approximately 15 meters at a time, with minimal disruption to traffic in the area. Not only was the new water pipeline easy and cost-effective to install, the Alvenius and Victaulic solutions provided a reliable piping system to the project stakeholders.
