Naylor Drainage Ltd. Provides Jacking Pipe for Drainage Works on Social Housing Projects in Brunei
Jan 24, 2013
Yorkshire, United Kingdom-based Naylor Drainage Ltd recently hosted a group visit led by its long-standing Brunei agent HungKee Plumbing Co. HungKee is in the course of supplying Naylor’s Denlok jacking pipe to a series of pipe installation projects across Brunei.
HungKee managing director James Luk was accompanied by a party of Brunei contractors and specifiers who are currently utilizing the pipes on ongoing projects. The party visited Naylor’s manufacturing operations, as well as inspecting a prepared shipment of the Denlok jacking pipe that was destined for upcoming microtunnelling works in Brunei.
The projects for which these pipes are earmarked include pipeline installations in support of works on two sewage treatment plants for new social housing developments in Brunei. The first of these is the Sungai Akar Sewerage Works project and the second is the Kg. Manggis Sewerage Works project.
The projects will utilize a Soltau RVS250 auger-based microtunneling machine to place the new pipelines into the silty ground beneath both the sewage plants; the ground conditions prevailing in the areas of the sewage plants lend themselves readily to trenchless pipe installation.
The visiting group from Brunei included Mr Arul from the project’s main contractor, Astal Engineering Sdn. Bhd; Mr Chong of microtunneling subcontractor Amberhigh Sdn. Bhd and Mr Jun Alcantara of Baharuddin & Associates, the engineering consultant for the works.
Commenting on the visit to the Naylor facility, Messrs Arul, Chong and Alcantara, were all very impressed with Naylor’s plant management and quality control procedures. They also expressed an interest in using Naylor’s Densleeve product range in Brunei on future open cut pipe installation works.
Luk said, “HungKee Plumbing Company has been the Brunei agent for Naylor since 1982. Our success in securing major vitrified clay pipe orders for sewerage projects in Brunei would not have been possible without strong support from Naylor in the U.K.”
For Naylor Drainage Ltd, chief executive Edward Naylor said, “The current level of infrastructure work being undertaken in Brunei has given us a major opportunity not only to reinforce our long standing reputation as an effective working partner and reliable supplier of Denlok jacking pipes but also to establish a firm base for the supply of other products in our range such as the Densleeve pipe for open cut installation.”
Denlok product manager Simon Marsh added, “The work being undertaken by Astal Engineering is one of three projects we are currently supplying. The recent order intake is testament to the confidence both contractors and consultants have in our Denlok product. Our reputation is built on technical advice given at the start of each submission and working with Brunei Darussalam Standards - Construction Planning and Research Unit (or CPRU) for full approval of all products.”
