  • Transfer of water to Choghart Iron ore mine - City of Bafgh and surrounding Villages
  • The water is transferred from Shahneh water reservoir in the vicinity of Yazd to the main location

Why Faratec™ GRP pipes?

  • Suitable for high pressure applications
  • Low weight which doesn't require heavy equipment for transport and installation
  • Ease of joining pipes (each joint takes approximately 10 minutes)
  • Corrosion resistance of the pipe, especially in apart of installation site which is a swamp area
  • Lower operation cost due to lack of corrosion and low friction factor

Pipe Speicification:

  • Pipe material: Faratec™ GRP Pipe
  • Max Diameter = 800 mm
  • Stiffness: 10000 Pa
  • Commissioning: 2009
  • Consultant: Farapox Engineering Company
  • Client: Contractor" Farassan Company & Gamroon Sanat Company Consortium

Highlights of the project:

  • Using wide trenches in some parts of pipeline route do to unstable soil condition
  • Various soil condition and mix which made installation a challenging task.
  • Installation in remote desert area and difficulty for logistics and support. Inherent ease of GRP Pipe installation and minimum need for heavy equipment was an advantage.
  • This 132 Km pipeline is one of the longest in Iran. Nearly 220 manholes for various accessories and valves were constructed along the pipeline route.

Transfer of water from Aydaghshloo Dam – Construction of siphons Using Fartec™ GRP Pipes

Construction of siphons Using Fartec™ GRP Pipes
Project Goal:

  • The goal of project was to transfer of water for irrigation purposes from Aydaghshloo Dam to surrounding agricultural fields.
  • Initially, culverts were used to transfer the water, but the constructed culverts were damaged to water pressure and therefore it was decided to replace the damaged structure with Faratec GRP Pipes.

Reasons for using Faratec™ GRP Pipes:

  • Resistance of pipe to high fluid pressure. The pressure is caused by high elevation.
  • Low weight of the pipes made it possible to use light installation equipments in mountainous and high slope regions.
  • High performance of Faratec™ GRP pipes in flood conditions.
  • Farassan was responsible for supply of the complete pipeline pipe and accessories.

Highlights of the Project:

  • Because of the flood condition, the bedding was filled with concrete.
  • Difficult installation conditions, sharp slopes and unfavorable weather conditions
  • Low weight of Faratec™ caused tremendous financial saving during the installation in sharp slopes
  • In order to increase the safety factor, the number of concrete supports were doubled by consulting company.

Pipe Specification:

  • Pipe material: Faratec™ GRP pipe
  • Diameter: 1600 mm
  • Pressure rating: 6 and 10 bar
  • Stiffness: 2500 Pa

Transfer of water from Aydaghshloo Dam  Using GRP
Bandare-Emam Project Using Faratec™ GRP Pipes

Project Goal:

The goal of this project was to supply water from Kote-Amir region to the largest petrochemical complexes in the Bandar-Emam Economic zone by the Persian Gulf. The needed water for this huge petrochemical complex is brought to complex from Kote-Amir purification plant in city of Ahvaz, purified more in Sar-Bandar purification unit so it would reach proper specification to be used in Bandar-Emam petrochemical complex. The First GRP pipeline in this region was constructed in 1974 and still is in service.

Geography of installation site:

Bandar-Emam is located in south western part of Iran and in the northwest of Persian Gulf. For more than 8 months the temperature reaches over 40 C and seasonal heavy rain fall is common in this region . The soil in this region is extremely soft and because of the proximity to the Gulf, the water level is very high.

Bandare-Emam Project Using Faratec™ GRP Pipes

Project Highlights:

  • 60 Km of this important project was supplied and installed by Farassan Man. & Ind Company.
  • High water level in the installation site was a challenge. Most of the pipeline was installed 1 to 3 meters below the water level in trenches.
  • Intersection of the pipeline route with railroad called for special installation techniques. Pipes had to be installed in depth of up to 6.5 meters using pipe-jacking procedure.
  • Construction  of 5 siphons using Faratec™ GRP pipes for a total of 4.5 Km.
  • A part of the pipeline was installed in swamp area.

Pipeline Specification:

  • Pipe: Faratec™ GRP pipes
  • Diameter: 2000 mm
  • Maximum Pressure: 6 bar
  • Pie Stiffness: 5000 Pa
  • Approximate Quantity: 64 Km

Cheshmeh-Sasan Project

Project Goal:

The goal of the project was to reconstruct the old pipeline which was constructed more than 50 years ago. This aged pipeline was constructed to transfer water from Cheshmeh-Sasan springs to the agricultural farms in the Kazeron Region in Fars province. Faratec GRP pipeline was designed to transfer 400 Lit/sec of water to the region and distribute the water throughout the plain using 19 main pipe branches.

Why Faratec™ GRP Pipes:
  • Resistance to corrosion.
  • Low weight. Because the pipeline had to be installed in the villages and farmland and gardens, use of heavy installation equipment was not possible. Low weigh Faratec™ GRP pipes were installed using light installation machinaru without causing damage to trees and the environment.
  • In a section of the pipeline route, when the pipeline intersected Shah poor River, Special supports had to be designed in order to install and pass the pipeline on top of the river, without disturbing the river bedding and so to preserve the environment.

Pipeline Specification:

  • Pipe: Faratec™ GRP quales and manholes
  • Pipeline main section
  • DN: 600 mm,PN= 10 bar,SN: 2500 Pa,Quantity: 11.67 Km, DN= 500 mm, PN=10 bar,SN: 2500 Pa,Quantity: 2.22 Km, DN= 450 mm,PN=10 bar,SN= 2500 Pa,Quantity: 5.11 Km.
