Trench-less technology means combing the use of a cables or pipe plough and trailer, over open ground, under roads, water courses, ducts, drains, water, gas pipes, windfarm,
rails or rivers sub soil for windfarm technology, pipe and cable laying
open cutting or ploughing would not be possible.
A typical application would be the laying of 33kv trefoil cable plus a copper earth, up to 4 No 40mm ducts for fibre optic control or
telecoms cables plus two 50mm standard yellow marker tapes. These are laid in one pass down to a depth of 2 metres
has shown that there is no requirement for sanding the cables because the fines in the soil are the first layer
around the cables.
This results in considerable cost saving and an average cablelaying rate of 800 – 1000 metres per day the site times and need for long
possessions and fencing off areas are eliminated. Because no sub soil is brought to the surface re-instatement of the plough run is
completed quickly and the natural seed bed in grasslands or SSSI sites recover quicker.
