Flow-Liner goes nuclear in North Carolina
Flow-Liner has ‘gone nuclear’, after a certified installer provided a Trenchless Technology solution at McGuire Nuclear Station, 27 km northwest of Charlotte, North Carolina.
The station, built by owner-operator Duke Energy in 1963, required urgent pipe rehabilitation when the contractor was contacted by the Austin Technical Services.
Flow-Liner’s cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining Inversion System was used to clean and line over 600 m of waste and water pipes.
The method successfully navigated bends and transitions, and complied with all of the power plant’s stringent security and safety procedures.
Austin Technical Services President said “The (installer) came through with a successful design and installation which precluded a lengthy and costly direct replacement option.”
