NELSON, UK, Aug. 11, 2009 -- Ferro Monk Systems, part of the Clugston group of companies and one of the UK's leading wastewater asset and pipeline rehabilitation specialists has recently completed a successful project on the Hendon Brook Walverden Water Flood Alleviation Scheme Phase 1. The project which was successfully completed on time and on budget involved using two of the company's solutions, Cured in Place Pipe Lining (CIPP) and the company's own patented Ferrocement solution. Ferro Monk is one of the very few companies in the UK capable of providing this range of solutions on projects of this nature.

The project, which lasted a total of four weeks, required a series of complex phases to be completed. CIPP was used to three culvert sections, each of which had its own unique requirements and involved lining corrugated steel pipe as well as clay and concrete pipe. All the sections were successfully lined with bends negotiated smoothly and minimal loss of cross sectional area, resulting in a much improved flow characteristic due to the smoothing effect on existing corrugations.

Ian Gemmell, Contracts Manager, from Morrison Construction commented, "Ferro Monk Systems provided not just one solution but two, with CIPP and Ferrocement. The senior team involved objectively looked at the requirements of the project identifying what was required and delivered on time and on budget what was a perfect solution. We were most impressed with the outstanding professional service and support we received."
