NEC had been selected for the water main replacement project in New Territories, Hong Kong. The main transfers raw water from Dongjiang in mainland China received at Muk Wu pumping station to water treatment works or to impounding reservoirs for temporary storage. The project involved the replacement of about 5 km glass-reinforced-plastic pipes of 2.1−2.3 m diameter as these were laid almost 40 years ago and had deteriorated. NEC-inspired collaboration led to several innovative solutions, such as the largest slip-lining works in Hong Kong and the use of ground penetrating radar to create an underground building information model. #hongkong
