Sydney Olympic Park Remediation of Storm Water Network
Client: Sydney Olympic Park Authority (SOPA)
Project: Remediation of the storm water drainage system serving the Sydney Olympic Park Complex
The Sydney Olympic Park Complex is served by a comprehensive storm water drainage system that covers all road, parkland and building drainage needs for the site. Apart from the system serving the Newington area, the storm water drainage system is relatively new being completed during the late 1990’s.
Downer PipeTech operates a fleet of hydraulic pipeline robotic units, for the internal repair and sealing of defective pipelines. The units are fully self contained, and can operate in diameters of 135-800mm. The robotic services available include:
- Cutting of intruding laterals
- Removing encrustation
- Preparation for lining
- Reopening laterals
- Epoxy sealing of junctions and pipe defects
This project emerged after investigation by SOPA found that the network had suffered significant damage during construction of the park site, as well as the detection of a number of other defects that had not been identified prior to handover. ITS was awarded the first contract in February 2007 (18 months in duration) and the second in June 2010 based on key assessment criteria of experience, technical expertise, methodology and price.
