Safe, Innovative and Cost-Effective
The Pipe Jacking trenchless technology method is a system of directly installing prefabricated pipes behind a tunnel shield by hydraulic jacking force from a drive shaft. The pipes actually form a continuous string in the ground in the direction of the target shaft. The jacking force is transmitted through pipe-to-pipe interaction. Excavation is performed manually with a hand mine shield or mechanically with the use of a Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM).
Benefits of Pipe Jacking/Tunneling:
- Little to no impact on the environment
- Reduced impact on pedestrians, traffic, roads and noise pollution
- Provides optimal strength of pipes and installation with proven results
- Offers precision installation in both line and grade
- Cost-effective in terms of time, costs and resources
- Conventional Tunneling (Soft Ground)
- Earth Pressure Balance Machine (EPBM)
- Hand Mining & Tunneling
- Rock Tunneling
- Microtunneling (MT)
