In December 2016, M&D was awarded the Magalies Water, Wallmannsthal System Upgrading and Extension of Zeekoegat Gravity Main.

The contract comprises the construction of a new 7300m pipeline consisting of 350mm and 300mm ND GRP pipe, connections to existing consumers and the linking of the existing and new pipelines. The first 2730m of pipe will be converted into a b-directional pipe, that will be able to act as a gravity main for this section of pipeline.

To date, the Site establishment has been completed and the first 4065m of servitude has been cleared and excavations have started and a local sub-contractor has been appointed to start with the chambers.

The GRP pipe has been delivered to site (pictured below).Wallman. GRP
