As a part of Mexico’s Transport and Communications
Infrastructure Investment Program 2013-2018, the development
of the infrastructure is viewed as a fundamental element to
achieve a modern and progressive country. This improvement
process includes roads, railways, ports, airports and
telecommunications that will help to reinforce Mexico as an
emerging economic power in the 21st Century.
To help with this strategic initiative, several remote areas in the
country have begun building up their roads and transportation
areas to help accelerate economic activity and aid in the heavy
construction necessary to further the development.
In order to reach one of these remote locations, the Empresa ICA
selected Contech CCP Pipe Mexico to help implement a cost-effective,
manufacturing solution. Utilizing Contech’s MOBILE
PIPE® Mill, they were able to produce over 25,000 linear feet of
Contech’s HEL-COR® corrugated metal pipe in 42-inch, 48-inch
and 60-inch diameters and install right there for a practical and
effective storm sewer solution. The ability to produce and install
on site was a great advantage in meeting the project’s 4-6 month
install deadline as the closest manufacturing facility was over
300 miles away and having to deal with manufacturing off-site
and determining effective logistic strategies to the site would
have severely hampered the designated project deadlines.
The structural capabilities of the pipe was also important as the pipe would be buried with a cover of over 125
feet. HEL-COR comes in a wide variety of gages , long lengths and its strength can handle fill heights in excess
of 100 feet. Given the local technical support that Contech also provided, the entire project was an overall
