Pipe alternative

I am writing with regard to Tim Treadgold’s column ‘Shieldliner piping for ASX listing’ (WA Business News, May 13).

The article depicts Sheildliner as a recent innovation in pipe re-lining technology. Pipe re-lining technology has been around for many years in various parts of the world and there are a few companies in Australia that have had the technology for several years as well.

Precast & Drilline is one such company. We cannot comment on the benefits of one system against the other, as from my understanding the materials and methodologies are different. However, we have successfully completed several projects for the Water Corporation and local councils in the concrete pipe re-lining for sewer application.

In my opinion, Mr Treadgold’s article presents Sheildliner as the sole alternative to conventional trenching techniques. We would argue this point, even though the products and methodologies are different. There are a few other systems that have proved to be successful and effective alternatives to conventional techniques.
