Llanelli –  Welsh Water Rainscape

The Welsh Water / Morgan Sindall Rainscape Project in South Wales awarded Rorcon the work to construct 8 shafts and 1 pumping station. The specialist team constructed the 4.5-6m segmental shafts by caisson method using a 1.5m ID pre-cast concrete jacking pipe to drive over 1400LM of tunnel beneath Llanelli. The pumping station, ID 11m showcased Micro Tunnelling techniques to ensure the completion of the 1500mm Flood Relief Sewer to help combat the vast volume of storm water the region currently experiences.

The crew encountered some difficult ground but pushed past this working well together as a team to complete the works punctually and to the highest standard. Proven by the testimonial we received by John Clifton at Morgan Sindall “The personnel provided by Rorcon Limited are first class with the right experience and qualifications for the required roles.”
