ONSEEPKANS BULK IRRIGATION PROJECT
Onseepkans is a small town bordering the great Orange River, that separates South Africa and Namibia and this project was to replace the very old existing canal irrigation system. This new pipe line , pump stations and dam will change the gravity irrigation system to a pressurized irrigation system. A variety of materials were investigated by the engineer but the advantages of Flowtite GRP, our assistance during the design process and our presence on site played a major role in this project.
The department of Land Reform and Development is elated with this project as it will assist the local community to produce agricultural products for the market.
