Customized proposal won the project
An international order is not never easy to obtain. Although Newchoice Pipe successfully made its way to project team in the early bidding stage, it has conducted a series of meticulous studies to successfully win this project as the Kauswagan Power Station water supply and drainage project has high requirement on the caliber, ring rigidity and stability of pipes. In addition, there was no precedent for the export of such large-caliber products in China. During the nearly two years from the initiation to the signing of the procurement contract, Newchoice people kept carrying out research on design, procurement, construction and quality inspection with project survey & designing institute and project constructors to work out and improve solutions. For special requirements of the project, Newchoice Pipe with its customized strategy finally won the project.

The pipes purchased in the project include (HDPE) B-type spiral pipes, steel-framed PE plastic composite pipes. According to the design requirements of the project, a large-caliber heavy-duty, anti-corrosion and water-tight drainage pipe with zero leakage is required.

The pipe laid is up to 1.6KM and currently China’s largest caliber pipe in similar products exported to overseas market. It has laid a solid foundation for similar products to enter overseas markets in the future.
