Water infrastructure is a vital part of modern society, but in many cases, pipes and other infrastructure are aging, risking damage and leakage. SANEXEN’s ALTRA proven water technology renews and protects aging water infrastructure from the inside. It offers a less disruptive and physically superior alternative to the outright replacement of aging or deteriorated water main pipes. On average 25% less expensive than traditional construction methods, it also presents several other benefits. It is anticipated that the deployment of this technology over 15 years will lead to considerable reduction in carbon emissions, fuel consumption, potable water loss through leaks as well as traffic and urban disruption.

The Environmental Benefits

  • Will reduce water loss from pipes by 136 million cubic metres over next 15 years
  • Will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1,390 kilotons CO2 equivalent over next 15 years

The Financial Benefits

  • 20-30% less costly than traditional open cut (dig and replace) methods, whilst delivering superior results
  • Reduces the time duration of projects by 50-60%, reducing costs and delays to businesses, municipalities and society
