The municipality of Venlo counts more than 100,000 inhabitants and is as region in which economy and nature meet and strengthen each other the beating heart of North Limburg. Apart from being the trade gateway to Germany, Venlo features highway A73 and A67, the river Maas and a ECT (Europe Container Terminal) cargo hub which make the region’s transportation capabilities trimodal. It therefore comes as no surprise that the municipality is continuously investing in urban renewals and expansion and under constant change to suit demands. Numerous projects conducted at various locations required major adaptations regarding infrastructure, respectively the sewage systems which had to be adjusted and expanded accordingly. A long service life, at least 80 years of durability, flexibility regarding the installation and possible future modifications as well as a simple and rapid assembly have been and still are the main prerequisites to pipe systems under prevailing circumstances. The municipality has thoroughly compared several available products and has been choosing, amongst others, the highly durable HOBAS CC-GRP Sewerline® Systems. HOBAS has been standing for high quality and innovations for more than half a century and around the world. Its centrifugally cast glass fiber reinforced plastics products can be flexibly applied as they are easily connected to existing sewers and can be just as easily extended or modified once they have been installed. Due to many benefits Venlo has resorted to HOBAS over and over again since their first experiences with the product in 2003. Over the past years various sewer and storage extension projects as well as newly established sewer pipelines in the city center and industrial park have been realized with the high quality HOBAS CC-GRP SewerLine® Systems.
