“OnSite Challow are pleased to announce, as part of their continued investment in rehabilitation equipment, techniques & products, the arrival of three new “SHOOTERS” – CIPP(Cured In Place Pipe) Inversion Units. These replace two older “SHOOTERS” which have been in use for the last 10 years installing many thousands of kilometers of linings with the first shooter having been introduced to the Wessex Water contract which now gives them more versatility to lining installations.
Onsite have chosen the new “SHOOTER” because of its reliability, it is robust, it is adaptable to the type of curing process we choose and it is capable of continuous air inversion for longer lining installations. The “SHOOTER” is also user friendly and is versatile to the more challenging sites where access is difficult.
The introduction of the new ”SHOOTERS” has proven to be a great success for the installation of linings…and in most cases, the need for entering a confined space to invert the lining. These new investments shall improve how we manage our Health & Safety and also to deliver more efficiently.”
“Moving away from the inherent risks associated with water eversion towers, where possible, aligns with our safety first, ethos. Certainly, the operation and performance of these machines have been very impressive.”
—Julian Britton, Critical Sewer Manager for Wessex Water
“We are delighted with Onsite’s continued investment for delivery of our sewer rehabilitation program. We look forward to using these units and realising the improved performance towards our core principles of health and safety and customer satisfaction.”
—Lee Forth, Technical Manager for Anglian Water’s (@one Alliance) Sewer Rehabilitation schemes
