Saint-Gobain PAM España supplied PAM Natural ductile iron pipes for the emergency repair work on the Rabasa-Fenollar-Amadorio pipelines in Alicante. The repair work required total investment of €3.9 million to connect the Mutxamel desalination plant to the pipeline and to divide the pipeline into two lines at the final stage of the Ramellat-Obturador section.
The Júcar River Basin Management Authority (CHJ) opened a tender procedure for this work, which was divided into five stages. Four of them were associated with repair work through the duplication of several sections of the pipeline, due to the fact that the condition of the pipeline made it impossible to meet the supply needs of the population of the Marina Baja.
The work also included the upgrading of other elements in this stretch of pipeline, such as the manholes that enable capacity to be increased and ensure correct functioning. In addition, four pumps were installed to lift and pump 735 m3/h at 165 wcm.
