Pipe installation with GRUNDODRILL 11XP in redeveloped residential area
Three PE-HD DA 50 pipes were laid in the historic city centre of Dresden to accommodate glasfibre cables connecting domestic households to the new high-speed internet network (VSDL). To avoid any damage to the valuable road surfaces, the PE pipes were laid using trenchless technology in sections of 54, 112, 100 and 99 meter lengths. Customer M&M decided it was an ideal first job for their new GRUNDODRILL 11XP. The compact design makes the 11XP ideally suited for sites with restricted access, as commonly in inner-city locations.
TT ASIA PACIFIC’S GRUNDORAM flies first class for Pipeline Drillers
Pipeline Drillers were engaged by Monadelphous KT Pipelines to undertake challenging trenchless works associated with the FRGP 16” gas line in October 2014. After conducting the initial scoping and research on site in Western Australia, they found varying ground conditions, numerous stakeholders, crossings inside the FMG Solomon Hub iron ore mine, all in combination with a very tight time frame for completion of the job.

A sharp bend beneath the river Enz
In the Northern Black Forest, there are many very narrow valleys, trenched by a number of streams. These stream valleys also present important traffic ways; densely wooded hillsides, roads and forest paths share the narrow confines of the valley above the wild riverbank. Whenever supply lines need to cross such a valley recess, you can be sure to encounter a tight affair. Near Simmersfeld, the river Enz and a federal road had to be undercrossed almost at right angles to allow the installation of a buried cable for current conduction (until then, the power was supplied via overhead line, prone to influences by the weather).
Crossing underneath the railway area of Schwarzenbach
Schwarzenbach lies in the centre of the Erz Mountains, along the railway line from Zwickau in Germany to Carlsbad (Karlovy Vary) in the Czech Republic which passes through Aue and Johanngeorgenstadt. Within the railway area, six tracks, two platforms, two roads and an embankment had to be undercrossed to install buried cables for the power supply of a new commercial zone behind the railway station.
