Making Pipe Dreams a Reality in KSa

Yorkshire-based Naylor Drainage, which has been supplying clay drainage pipes internationally for many years, was recently highlighted as one of the UK's 200 fastest growing exporters in the Sunday Times International Track 200 review.

According to Edward Naylor, managing director of Naylor Drainage: "This has been achieved by focusing on fast growing economies, particularly in the southern hemisphere."

The attractiveness of Naylor's offering overseas has been enhanced by the development of Denlok - a high-strength clay jacking pipe, which permits installation of vital infrastructure through trenchless methods with minimal surface disruption.

The most recent example of this adaptability was the approach which allowed Naylor to win two large projects that are currently underway in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Firstly was a drainage upgrading project in Buraidah, about 300 km northwest of Riyadh. Clay pipes were specified throughout, with engineers drawing on clay's longevity for long-term peace of mind. The projects required the installation of some 13,600m of Denlok pipe.

Negotiations for this project started in July 2012 between Naylor and Thurstboring Construction Company (TCC), which is part of the Tamimi Group Saudi Arabia, and were successfully completed with the first of seven pipe shipment dispatched in May 2013. Each shipment comprises of 1,000m supplied on time and to specification; to date some 3000 m of this pipe is already installed. The main contractor for the drainage upgrade works is FEDAK International Contracting Company with the bore works being sub-contracted; the project required 6,100 m of pipes ranging in diameter from DN200 to DN900.

The Naylor team is currently arranging further visits to the region with a view to looking at further potential work.
