Installation of cable protection pipe through a nature reserve to a tide gauge
The tide gauge at Schleimünde is situated on the north side of the Schlei Estuary, approx 150 m along the coast side of the pilot island in the Baltic Sea. Energy supply and data transfer is carried out via 2 cables which run further from the gauge westwards towards a building on the south side of the pilot island. These cables no longer functioned and needed renewing. The trenchless installation of a protection pipe ND 100 to host these cables over a total length of 228 m was just the right job for contractor Paasch's experienced bore crew.
