The ORFEUS project, which is a European Commission funded collaborative research study, with the following three main objectives:
This brand new advancement in cable and pipe avoidance was just one of the many trenchless or minimal dig techniques on show.
The ORFEUS Project – Next generation GPR Technology
During the inter-active morning and afternoon sessions, VIPs and over 200 guests visited the exhibition stands and TT-UK were able to display their range of the industry’s preferred GRUNDOMAT Soil Displacement Hammers for accurate and reliable service and mains laying and GRUNDOBURST 400G on-line gas/water pipe replacement systems. The GRUNDOBURST can pull in a variety of replacement pipe including PVC, DIP, ABS, cast iron, fusion welded HDPE and VCP jacking pipe. Pulled by a hydraulic bursting unit, the cutter head’s special roller cutting wheels split the host pipe. Six models are available for bursting 2-inch (50mm) through 54-inch (1400mm) pipes and larger.

Due to the exceptionally fine weather on the launch day, TT-UK were able to demonstrate their new City Sucker 7.5 tonne Suction Excavator which, when used in city centre environments, greatly reduces the risk of cable strike and inadvertent damage to other third party buried plant in the vicinity.
