In the Georgia Lakhami, Hydroelectric Power Plant project; a total of 18 MW of energy will be produced, 10.8 MW on the HPP-1 Lower Stage line and 7.2 MW on the Upper Stage line on the HPP-2. GRP pipes that the pressure classes are from PN6 to PN32 bar have been preferred.
Within the scope of the project, 7022 m of GRP pipes and fittings in DN 1400mm, DN 1300mm, DN 1200mm, and DN 1100mm diameters all of which are SN10000 have been used.
The pipeline was successfully completed in 8 months during the difficult period of winter conditions and is located on the riverbed. Since the project is located in the #riverbed area, a special design has been made and the drainage material and geotextile are laid on the bottom of the trench.
Pipe installation, fully backfilling works, pipe shipment and valves connection were successfully applied by Superlitsiteteam. Superlit has full responsibility in all applications from pipe shipment to site hydrotesting.
Leak perfomance test on installed GRP Pipeline has been performed at 34,5 bar at sections for the pipe class between 6 -32 bar and energy production at the power plant has started as of October 2020.
