AGL - Glenaras Water Holding Pond

Projects ~ Liners

Principal: AGL
Head Contractor: Ostwald Civil
Location: Nr Longreach, QLD
Date: October 2009

Project Scope:

Prior to contract award Fabtech provided specification and design advice to AGL. Fabtech was contracted by Ostwald Bros who were the head contractor for this remote area holding pond. The project criteria was to supply and install a geotextile cushion layer under an HDPE liner system. The surface area lined was approximately 100,000m2. The project was completed at night to avoid high daytime temperatures and solar loading compromising weld integrity and to assist in managing employee fatigue.

Additional Information:

Fatigue management and road safety was a special consideration as accommodation was a significant distance from the works, on unsealed roads with abundant wildlife.
