Pipe jacking is primarily used as an alternative to open cut excavations or other tunnelling methods.
The major applications for pipe jacking and microtunnelling include new sewerage and drainage construction, sewer replacement and lining, gas and water mains, oil pipelines, electricity and telecommunications’ cable installation, and culverts. Special applications include the installation of rectangular or circular sections for pedestrian subways, road underpasses and bridge abutments. The technique can be used to negotiate obstacles such as motorways, railways, rivers, canals, buildings and airfields in the path of pipe laying projects; to minimize the surface disruption frequently associated with open cut pipe laying methods in urban areas; or simply to provide a permanent underground tunnel construction. We have the all the necessary infrastructure in place to successfully execute any kind of oil, gas, water pipeline project.
