CALGARY, July 11, 2017 /CNW/ - Maynilad Water Services has awarded Pure Technologies ("Pure") a 12-month contract, worth up to $1.7 million, to assess a critical water pipeline within Metro Manila in the Philippines. The contract, which takes advantage of Pure's Assess and Address™ approach to pipeline management, marks the first condition assessment program for a water network operator located in south-east Asia.
"We've been partnering with Pure for more than eight years to assist with the reduction of our non-revenue water," said Eric J. Montes, VP Integrated Asset Management, Maynilad. "This project, which is part of our Pipeline Integrity Management, is aligned with our overall Asset Management Program. One of the major goals of the project is to establish the baseline condition and to determine the lifecycle cost and maintenance requirements of the pipeline, which is the single most critical asset that we operate, as well as evaluate the condition in comparison to international standards. Ultimately, Pure will assist us with our replacement and rehabilitation decisions allowing us to extend the life of this important asset."
The 41 kilometer water trunk main is constructed from a combination of steel and prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) installed more than 30 years ago.
Pure will make Assess and Address recommendations based on a number of factors, including detected leaks, remaining wall thickness on the metallic pipes and broken wire wraps on the PCCP, which are the main indicators of potential issues. Pure's non-destructive technical approach will prioritize specific locations on the pipeline for repair/replacement.
"We enjoy partnering with forward-thinking water operators like Maynilad who are open to using innovation and advanced analytics to manage their most critical assets," said Mike Wrigglesworth, Senior Vice President of Pure Technologies. "This program builds on our existing relationship with Maynilad, and provides defensible information on the condition of their infrastructure so they can make more informed decisions in the future."
Maynilad Water Services Inc. is the water and wastewater services provider for the 17 cities and municipalities that comprise the West Zone of the Metropolitan Manila area in the Philippines. The water operator was granted exclusive concession to operate until 2037.
