Pipe Bursting / Slip Lining
Using our range of directional drilling rigs we are able to upgrade existing water, storm water and sewer pipelines by reaming out the existing obsolete host pipe and pulling through a new polyethylene pipeline. This process minimises disruption in often built up areas and can achieve significant cost savings for the client. In most cases the size of the existing pipeline can also be increased through the reaming process.
This technology has highlighted that large scale open cut replacement of pipeline in dense urban areas is no longer the feasible option.
