The Challenge
El Volcan Mine was facing a excess water that required dewatering. During the rainy season, the Mine area suffers from constant floods due to high level groundwater that wasn’t taken into consideration.
In addition, the client was looking for a quick and easy to install solution, since the pipe was going to be suspended, and a regular pipe will require supports.

The Solution
El Volcan Mine decided to replace their current 6” RD11 HDPE pipe for a Pexgol class 15 pipe 160 x 14.6 due to it quick and easy installation.
650 meters of Pexgol pipe was provided. The installation was done in a quick and efficient way, and count with Pexgol technical support during the whole process.
