As part of the renovation of the water supply system at Miodowa street in the historic city of Warsaw an old steel pipe was replaced with a cast iron pipe using static pipe bursting over 400 m length. It was decided to replace the steel pipe ND 150 mm with a ductile iron pipe of the same diameter. A major requirement of the client was minimal interference of the traffic along the busy Miodowa road, so the project called for a trenchless replacement method. Plus the existing underground infrastructure had to be located exactly.
TT-UK have worked with their sales partner Reef Trenchless Technology of Johannesburg for almost twenty years and the recent and very sudden and sad passing of Chris Elhers, (former Managing Director of Reef), was a shock to everyone. Tyler Craayenstein (the Grandson of Chris) has now taken over as Head of Sales for the Trenchless Technology Business and is proud to be continuing to build on his Grandfather’s firm foundations.
