South West Water Pipe Ram

JTS were initially contacted to provide a quote for “directional Drill” river crossing to install a 450mm PE Rising main.

An Overview

JTS were initially contacted to provide a quote for a "directional drill” river crossing to install a 450mm PE Rising main. On evaluation of the site and ground information it was clear that a drilling solution would not be possible due to the shallow depth of cover required and the unstable water-bearing sand ground conditions. After looking at various methods available, including Augerbore and Microtunnelling, Pipe Ramming was finally chosen as the most economical and practical method capable of dealing with the engineering constraints and challenging geology.
