As all good emergency works are required OSIL received a request late last week to urgently repair ductwork that had significantly split on a large odour control system in Thames Water. The split had occurred at a segment joint of the 1 meter diameter 90 degree bend. The case of failure was due to ductwork being misaligned and strained into position during original installation by others.
OSIL responded to the urgent repair request immediately and the service team were mobilised within a few hours with the appropriate plant, tools & materials required to complete the repair.
Photos of the repaired ductwork beforehand, in progress & completed can be seen below:
