Customer challenge

In the municipality of Klundert, the drinking water line had to be replaced. This project offered a number of challenges:

- It was carried out on a dike body with a large number of trees as a result of which open excavation was impossible.

- The new drinking water pipe is a PE Ø 315, while the old pipe which had a diameter of Ø 175 (cast iron)

- Minimal inconvenience to the surroundings and through traffic also had to be taken into account.

What was our solution:

Pipe cracking, also called pipe bursting or splitting, is a technique where an old pipe is forcefully broken or cut open, after which a new (possibly larger) pipe is immediately drawn. As a result, there is minimal nuisance for the environment. In close consultation with our client, we drew up a Design & Construct Plan, which was then implemented.

What were the advantages of this. The advantages of pipecracking are:

- Possibility to increase diameter of the route

- Limited nuisance due to only a few working holes

- Very fast execution

- Low cost compared to traditional excavation

Do you also want to replace a pipeline that cannot be dug open or do you want to take advantage of the other advantages of Pipe Cracking? Please contact us at 0412-405 404.

 Vandaag hebben we de tweede OFT boring (beide 60 meter, GVK Ø550) ontvangen op ons project in Ede, dit betreft een spoorkruising tussen Ede-Wageningen en Veenendaal De Klomp. De primaire warmteleiding voorziet in de toekomst de huishoudens op het SOMA terrein van warmte.

OFT boring Weesp

Afgelopen week hebben wij een OFT boring van 56 meter (polymeerbeton Ø400/Ø550) gerealiseerd op station Weesp, dit ten behoeve van aan te leggen droge blusleidingen. Inclusief aanvalskasten voor de brandweer aan beide zijden van het station en brandkranen op de perrons. Om de treinreizigers zo min mogelijk tot last te zijn hebben we met beperkte ruimte een veilige werkplek gerealiseerd, tevens hebben we het drukscherm van damwanden in eigen beheer geplaatst.
