The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) has awarded Pure Technologies’ wholly-owned subsidiary, Pure Technologies U.S. Inc., a contract worth up to US$4.2 million over five years for the inspection of their Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipelines (PCCP). Work under the contract is expected to begin immediately.
Under the terms of the contract, Pure Technologies will provide pipeline condition assessment services as part of MWD’s long-term PCCP Rehabilitation Program. The pipelines to be inspected will be selected based on their criticality to MWD’s water delivery system as well as the condition and repair data already collected by MWD.
This new contract is in response to MWD’s Aug. 2016 request for qualification (RFQ) for a Large Diameter Concrete & Metallic Pipeline Inspection Services project. The purpose of the RFQ was to develop a list of pre-qualified respondents who could provide inspection services for large-diameter water delivery pipelines utilizing state-of-the-art inspection technologies.
