Customer's benefit

Outstanding work with an accommodating team

PERI Richards Bay have been outstanding and very accommodating. Ruan Pattinson and his team are highly recommended and we at Stefanutti Stocks have had a great and wonderful experience working with them on both the Nsezi Reservoirs.

PERI solution

For the first phase, PERI DOMINO was used with wedges to pour half the circumference to 6 m height. The shutters were then lifted 3 m at a time, using PERI CB 160 for the final two pours. For phase two, there were three sets of VARIO shuttering on site, which were each used to pour 1/6th at a time to 6 m height. The second pours were also done to 6 metres, using PERI’s CB 240 climbing system.  PERI Quickstage, radius channels and girders were utilised to support the reservoir roofs.
