Pipe boring is a trenchless technology. When it is used, underground pipelines or cables are installed by minimal soil excavation – a special equipment is placed in a moderate-sized boring pit of the required depth prepared on the ground or in the basement of a building, by which a tunnel is made and the casing of a pipe or cable is simultaneously pulled in.

Pipe boring is the optimal solution, when:
  • the surface of the land shall not be damaged (as in the case when a road or railroad goes or a building stands above the planned utility lines, in a park or other environmentally sensitive area);
  • there are only few other subsurface utility lines installed;
  • the boring place is easy to access;
  • the planned communication lines are short (up to 50 m).

The pipe boring is well suited for installation of cables of various application, water and sewer lines, and gas pipelines, whereas the diameter can vary from 50 up to 160 mm. The technology is not suitable for construction of the utility lines under a well or when the soil is filled with rocks or boulders, thus investigation of the soil shall be performed first.

By choosing the pipe boring, you can:
  • Ensure comfort: it is not necessary to impede or restrict any road or railroad traffic.
  • Accelerate project completion and make the job easier: necessary equipment can be made ready in a short time. Also, the boring tool and the casing reach the required destination point precisely.
  • Decrease construction costs: the pipe boring requires less man-power and equipment than the ground excavation. When the technology is applied in a well maintained territory, just some replanting might be necessary after the construction work is finished.

Thus, pipe boring technology is safe, fast, reliable, easily applicable, and economically viable. These advantages can be achieved only when the professional equipment is used.
