Installation of a hydrant pipe and hydrants
- Client SABIC Innovative Plastics B.V.
- Location Bergen op Zoom
- Status Delivered
When the system was overhauled, 225 metres of existing hydrant pipe was replaced On the site of SABIC Innovative Plastics B.V., a complete overhaul of the hydrant system, in parts, is taking place. Over the past decades, the existing hydrant system has been phased in and expanded with the use of various materials such as GRE (glass fibre reinforced epoxy) and (cemented and non-cemented) cast iron. Due to the age (approx. 40 years) of the system, bolted connections and flanges have been damaged and parts need replacing.
The continuity of Sabic's activities is safeguarded by the correct coordination of the activities with the client.
Revision hydrant system SABIC
During the overhaul of the system, the project replaced the existing hydrant pipe (225 metres), including 14 hydrants with pre-fill valves, of which 2 on the pipeline and 12 elsewhere on the site. At some of these locations, the branches on the main pipeline have also been replaced due to leakage. The pipelines are fitted with various sectional gate valves. The old cast iron pipeline has been replaced by a GRE pipeline, fitted with tensile-resistant connections.
