Replacement of a 600mm concrete pipe using pipe bursting in Roses, Spain
In May 2014 the city of Roses has replaced a concrete pipe Ø 600 mm with a PE pipe of the same diametre. The pipoe bursting system applied was a GRUNDOBURST 2500G.
The works were carried out by the construction company Aqualogy from Murcia. The jobsite was supervised by TRACTO-TECHNIK’s partner in Spain SISTEMAS. Altogether 295 m of old pipe had to be exchanged over two sections of 185 and 110 metres. Renewal of the sections took one day each at a pulling-in speed of 2 metres per minute. The special challenge of this project was the high ground water level with 50% of the old pipe being permanently under water. Due to the reliable equipment and the accurate operation the project was successfully completed to the full satisfaction involved.
