Date: 26 Mar 2019

Chemicals Business, SCG has partnered up with the Provincial Waterworks Authority (PWA) in Thailand’s first-ever underwater pipeline installation project, featuring a freshwater water pipeline of approximately 20 kilometers from Khanom District in Nakhon Si Thammarat to Samui in Surat Thani. The subsea pipes are made with the world’s first PE112, a resin developed by SCG that affords 10% greater pressure resistance in comparison to PE100 available on the market. The material helps ensure that the pipes meet required safety standards and achieve maximum efficiency. The “Samui Submarine Water Pipeline Construction” Project is set to enhance the efficiency of the island’s infrastructure and alleviate water scarcity, which will in turn boost its tourism industry and the economy of the country.
