Die Draw Ltd is extremely proud to be part of a winning team to be awarded the prestigious Pipeline Industry Guild ‘Utility Pipeline Project’ Award. The complex project involved 7 months of collaboration between Thames Water, Agility Alliance, Morrison Water Services and Die Draw Ltd to install 500 m of PE100 liner into a 36 in (914 mm) diameter, 150-year-old cast iron main in London. The location, in a highly built-up area with heavy
traffic, presented unique challenges requiring selection of a technology that minimised the installation size and footprint, whilst maximising flow post-installation. The Die Draw
technique was used to temporarily reduce liner diameter during installation. A 100 t winch was located at 90° to the pipeline using sheaves to transfer the pull-in forces between two very close adjacent mains without risk of disturbance.

“I’m delighted that Die Draw Ltd has helped our client MorrisonWS/Agility to win this prestigious award for its client Thames Water. It demonstrates what can be achieved when a multidisciplinary team with all the right expertise is assembled together from different
businesses. The successful implementation of Die Draw technology not only requires this, it demands it.” – Steve Brogden, Managing Director, Die Draw Ltd
