MC Construction Chemicals, along with its UK representative CJ Kelly Associates Ltd, is pleased to announce the launch of a new all-encompassing Manhole Renovation product range, ‘ombran’. The most recent statistics, reported by some 27 countries across Europe, have shown that there are some 60 million manholes currently in operation. A further report showed that, of these manholes, around 12% (or 7.2 million) are in a state of deterioration to the point where renewal is required. Furthermore, cost estimates also showed that the average cost of fully rehabilitating one manhole is about €2,250. This equates to a total of around €16.2 billion for the 7.2 million manholes needing repair.
