Client: Calédonienne des Eaux
Location: Noumea, Nouvelle-Calédonie
Equipment: Worldpoly1000 LF
New Caledonia continues to be an excellent example of Worldpolys’ ability to not only provide advice and welding equipment but to help add value to our client’s operation.
While working together on their reticulated water replacement program, the subject of major PE pipe use by the Islands Nickel mines was raised, with all welding historically performed by imported contractors.
Caledonia des Eaux then sourced relevant welding equipment to 1000mm and training from Worldpoly and won a contract to weld 800mm PE pipe.
With on-site assistance provided as needed, the contract was completed under budget and ahead of time, establishing Caledonienne Des Eaux as a major locally based supplier to the mining industry, keeping the business at home.
