Following in-depth comparisons with other types, HOBAS CC-GRP Pipe was finally chosen for building this secondary pipe system comprising diameters of between DN 300 and 900. Decisive were the wide application range, high corrosion resistance and flexibility of the pipes in the native soil, which consists primarily of alluvial sediment. The Italian planners also praised the short delivery times for special HOBAS CC-GRP Fittings in particular. In the interim the Umbrian authorities are also considering using water from the Montedoglio dam to irrigate the wine-growing area of Torgiano – a white wine that is hugely popular among the locals from Rome to Florence. Their track record to date could pave the way to the next project for HOBAS CC-GRP Pipe Systems.
