Rook Services Ltd goes trenchless to connect electric

26.11.19 - Specialist Civil Engineering Contractor, Rook Services Ltd, is an advocate of no-dig/trenchless technology projects that involve the installation and replacement of pipework.
The company was recently tasked with installing 14 electrical ducts under the A38 in the West Midlands to provide power for new property developments without creating disruption to road users. With limited space on either side of the road a compact, but powerful piece of equipment was required to carry out the work in such constricted areas, particularly the tight receiving pit. TRACTO-TECHNIK UK Ltd was able to provide the ideal solution in the shape of a GRUNDOPIT 6V fluid-assisted mini horizontal directional drilling rig which, despite small external working dimensions of 1375mm (L) x 1100mm(W) x 1440mm(H), has a powerful stroke, allowing for the installation of pilot rods with an effective length of 750 mm. High torque of 1500Nm combined with a maximum rotation of 150 rpm and a pulling force of up to 6 tonnes ensures that this productive unit was able to work effectively and quickly in difficult soil conditions.

With a deadline of just 8 days in which to lay 12 no 110mm ducts and 2 no 160mm ducts, and with drill shot lengths of between 15 and 18 metres each, the productive GRUNDOPIT 6V efficiently completed the task well within the required time scale - even allowing for some site delays.

Nick Richards, Project Manager at Rook Services, was impressed with the service from the team at TRACTO-TECHNIK UK Ltd from start to finish;

“The team demonstrated excellent technical knowledge throughout this project. A pre-site visit established the site requirements and pit dimensions, which led to an immediate start once the machine was delivered to site. Without doubt the GRUNDOPIT 6V is the ideal piece of equipment for this job. The ability to steer the drill within the tight space, underneath key infrastructure assets, meant we could complete the task safely and to the demanding specification of the customer. I would absolutely recommend the technology from TRACTO-TECHNIK UK Ltd for any job of this nature. The products are exceptional and the service matches it.”
