Fibrelite Composite Access Covers Provide Solution for LUKOIL Bulgaria EOOD National Upgrade Program

By OPW | Apr 09, 2019

 

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Apr. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – Composite access covers by Fibrelite, part of OPW and Dover (NYSE: DOV), were chosen for a national LUKOIL Bulgaria EOOD (“LUKOIL”) program to replace old, heavy-hinged cast iron access covers.

The nation-wide project began in late 2015 and impacted 13 petrol stations across Bulgaria. LUKOIL’s previously installed covers had become rusted over time, with hinge mechanisms beginning to fail and covers becoming unsafe for operators and site owners to remove and replace. The seals around the covers were also damaged, allowing water ingress. 

Fibrelite provided LUKOIL with corrosion-free lightweight fiber-reinforced plastic composite access covers through their responsive local distribution network, which guarantees fast turnaround times. Watertight and safely manually removable, these covers were the answer to LUKOIL’s manual handling challenges. Fibrelite manhole and trench covers require minimal maintenance and perform for the life of the site, making them a “fit and forget,” long-term solution. 

The project was completed by SisCo-M Ltd., a Bulgarian supplier of Fibrelite and other OPW products.
