ProFuse pipe reigns supreme in Edinburgh’s Royal Mile pipe replacement project

Radius Systems recently supplied 700 m of their innovative ProFuse® peelable pipe as part of a large gas mains replacement project in Edinburgh’s Old Town carried out by the gas distribution company SGN.

The project which involved the replacement of an old medium pressure metallic main in Edinburgh’s renowned historic district the Royal Mile, from the High Street/Cowgate to Holyrood Road, used Radius Systems’ 630 mm SDR21 ProFuse® pipe.

ProFuse® is a technologically advanced pipe innovation, which provides optimum joint integrity, damage protection and reduced installation time and costs to asset owners. Manufactured from black PE100, ProFuse® is designed with a unique peelable polypropylene outer skin, offering excellent abrasion resistance and protection to the pipe during handling, transportation, installation and reinstatement.

Andy Steele, Radius Systems’ Regional Sales Manager commented: ‘We’ve engaged closely with the whole of the Radius Operations team to ensure our pipe was produced and delivered on time to meet site requirements. The replacement of the ageing metallic main with a modern plastic pipe solution will provide a continued reliable gas supply to businesses and the community for future generations.’

SGN began this project in March 2017. It was completed in early December 2017.
