STEEP SLOPE SEAWATER SUPPLY PIPELINE

Lloyd F. Lewis, Joseph Van Ryzin, Luis Vega

Abstract


The State of Hawaii's Ocean Science and Technology (HOST) Park, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), and the Pacific International Center for High Technology Research (PICHTR) sponsored the construction and installation of an expanded seawater supply system at the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii (NELH). This effort included the installation of a 1.0m diameter high density polyethylene pipe capable of delivering 840 1/s of cold seawater, representing the longest (2,060m) large diameter pipe traversing the steepest slope ever spanned. Acceptance testing of the system was completed in June 1988 and the design service life is 10 years.
