Construction of main sewer using directional drilling for new public transport debot
Van Boekel GmbH was comissioned by Ruhrbahn GmbH in Essen to divert the main sewer by means of directional drilling. The work was carried out on the site of Essen’s bus and tram depot (Germany).
We were awarded this project after we explained our plan to the client and submitted the Most Economically Advantageous Tender. We used a method called ‘microtunneling’, which involves inserting concrete pipes into the soil through a pre-drilled tunnel. Together with ARS, we got started on the preparatory work in March 2018.
