Kenway Corp’s Hybrid Composites Culvert Repair System Successfully Installed at Three New Locations
Online PR News – 06-December-2010 – – Three additional Hybrid Composite Culvert Repair Systems have been successfully installed in Ebeemee and Indian Townships in central Maine. Developed by Kenway Corporation of Augusta Maine and the University of Maine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center (AEWC) the Hybrid Composite Culvert Repair System utilizes pre-engineered light-weight composite panels that conform to the existing culvert pipe with minimal invert change.
The Hybrid Composite Culvert Repair System has many advantages compared to total culvert replacement or traditional repair methods. Composite panels install quickly and easily with little need for heavy equipment, there is minimal culvert invert change, the process is less disruptive to the environment, there is reduced “in stream” time, traffic disruption is minimal, project duration is reduced and overall costs are less.
