Trunk Mains Cleaning

It’s life in the Fastflow lane for Roland Thomas following his appointment to head up the innovative trunk main pipeline cleaning team with Fastflow.

The success of the company’s award winning and environmentally friendly trunk mains cleaning system prompted the creation of a contracts manager post which Roland was selected to fill.

A string of contract wins over the past 12 months – including one with Northumbrian Water to maintain the North East’s clean water network – means the Washington based company has a decade of work in the pipeline.

Fastflow Pipeline Services has started 2011 with two important contract wins for its innovative trunk mains cleaning service.

The deals, with Northumbria Water, are worth an estimated £1.5 million and will see the company’s award winning system deployed on a 9.3 km stretch of 49” main around Ponteland and Gosforth near Tyneside and a 3.6 km stretch of 30” main between Whittle Dene and Millway in Horesley, Northumberland.

Neil Armstrong, owner and chief executive officer of Fastflow: “I am delighted that we have won these contracts.  We spent a lot of time and money developing our unique cleaning system to make it safer, more environmentally friendly and cost effective for the customer.

”We are now starting to see the fruits of our labour and having enjoyed quite a year in 2010, to start 2011 with a double success is excellent news.  We are excited about the system we now have and hope to extend operations around the UK.”
