Fulton Hogan/HEB Joint Venture Huntly Bypass project – pile casings
Steel & Tube chief executive Dave Taylor says pile casings are not typically stock items and are sourced for specific project requirements.
"S gave several options to the joint venture to meet their specifications, from which they made their selection. To ensure that the steel for the pile casings met the specifications, in addition to the steel mill and their external independent testing regime, Steel & Tube commissioned an independent ILAC accredited laboratory to test the steel. A third pre-export inspection was also completed by SGS in China. SGS are a global inspection and verification company."
The pile casings were then delivered directly to the work site in the Waikato.
Mr Taylor says following discovery and confirmation of issues with the pile casings, S has worked collaboratively with the joint venture to develop a safe engineering solution.
"We acknowledge that the pile casings do not meet the joint ventures specifications, and we are in discussion with multiple agencies in New Zealand and China. Given those discussions, we are not in a position to comment any further at this stage".
