HDD - Heronbridge Pipeline Duplication Scheme

In order to maintain their supply of raw water to Sutton Hall Water Treatment Works, United Utilities (UU) required LiMA, (a Laing O'Rourke, Imtech and Atkins) AMP6 partnership to install an 800mm polyethylene (PE) pipe under the A483, which is one of the busiest roads leading in to Chester city center.   Visser & Smit Hanab were contracted by LiMA for the Horizontal Directional Drill (HDD) and welding of the free issue 800mm PE product.  The purpose of the drilling was to upgrade the existing raw water supply from the River Dee which supplies the industrial areas in Chester, Ellesmere Port and the Wirral.
