Project Details

Due to the ever increasing population in Darwin, an upgrade to the Darwin River Dam was a necessity. An extension to the pumping capabilities was required, so a duplicate pipe was installed. 

The Pipe was a 1400mm diameter fusionkote MSCL. Power and Water approved Denso Premier Heat Shrink Sleeve 30STwhich was selected for the protection of field joints. Denso Bitumen Mastic Strip and Densopol 60was used for the scour valves and spool work. 

These products were supplied by Rhino Industrial whom are a prime distributor in Darwin. Training in the application of both the Premier Heat Shrink Sleeves™ and the Densopol 60™ system was given to our new approved applicator, resulting in another successful application of a Denso (Australia) Pty Ltd product.
