Drilling Case Study

Ipswich Motorway Upgrade

In January 2008 we were asked to supply surface casing to our longstanding horizontal directional drilling customers, Tunnel Boring for the current Ipswich Motorway Upgrade. Horizontal directional drilling takes pipe from one point to another, which can be up to several kilometres away, with little to no surface disturbance.

This order required precision cutting by our yard staff as the pipe had to be supplied in exact 6 metre lengths to accommodate the auger shafts on site. Band saws at our Zillmere yard were able to cut the required pipe to size and they were loaded and delivered by our local delivery truck with care. Tunnel Boring were happy with our quick delivery and the precision of the cut lengths we supplied.







Piling Case Study

Hamilton Island Marina Expansion

“In April 2008, East Coast Pipe Supplies was contracted by Hamilton Island to supply steel piles for their G Arm Marina Expansion program. The piles used were 406.4mm diameter and 457mm diameter piles up to 17 metres in length, and in total 46 piles where supplied. The supply of these piles had to be timed correctly to meet barge timing and piling rig availability. East Coast Pipe Supplies completed the supply of these piles on time and on budget.”

I have used East Coast Pipe Supplies on a number of our piling projects over the last couple of years and I have always found them very reliable and easy to deal with. We can’t afford to have our piling contractor waiting around with no piles to drive and we don’t have the room to store all the piles for the project, so we need piles delivered just as we are about to use them. East Coast Pipe take care of all our logistics so the piles are always onsite when we specify and I don’t need to worry about coordinating trucking companies. I would recommend East Coast Pipe Supplies to anyone undertaking a project requiring pipe.
