Hobas Awarded Contract in Honolulu

June 6, 2015
The $200 million project is expected to be completed by June 2018

Hobas Pipe USA is supplying centrifugally cast fiberglass reinforced polymer mortar pipe to the city and county of Honolulu for the Kaneohe-Kailua Wastewater Conveyance Tunnel project. This gravity sewer tunnel will convey wastewater flows from Kaneohe to Kailua while providing wastewater storage to help prevent overflows, especially during heavy rainfall events. More than 90% of the Kaneohe-to-Kailua tunnel will be deeper than 100 ft.

Sixteen thousand feet of 120-in. and approximately 2,000 ft of 30- to 96-in. pipe is being manufactured in Houston and transported by cargo ship to Honolulu. The first shipment included 4,000 ft of the 120-in. pipe. It was loaded onto the 692-ft MV Marjorie C in Galveston, Texas, for the ship's maiden voyage. The $200 million project is expected to be completed by June 2018.
