Poly Piping Project at Tanami Gold


This project saw the installation and poly welding of nearly 20kms of PE100 Pipe for the tailings, storm water, seepage pond returns and decant lines for the newly constructed tailings storage facility at The Granites.

Stripes undertook the whole project from pipe handling to pipe welding and installation and the installation of all valves and fittings. Stripes also installed all the pumps, generators and fuel pods and undertook all the tie-ins to existing lines and commissioning.

The pipe included sizes from 110mm through to 315mm and welding was carried out using the high pressure McElroy machines which aided in fast and efficient welding with data logging of each weld. The project was completed ahead of time with zero lost time incidents.

Full Quality Assurance with weld record sheets and ITP’s were provided to the Client within one day of completing the project.
