Pezzimenti Trenchless boasts microtunnelling capabilities
Sep 11, 2023
Pezzimenti Trenchless continues to showcase its position as a leading trenchless specialist by completing works on two Victorian projects.
The Pezzimenti Trenchless method ensures all types of pipes are installed efficiently, with Hobas jacking pipes typically used for larger bores requiring continuous ground support. For the Mont Albert Level Crossing Removal, as the railway was to be lowered at the location, a new sewer was required, which led to Harris Civil engaging Pezzimenti Trenchless to complete the pipe jacking works.
The lengths of the bores were 73m, 92m and 80m, installed at a depth from 5m to 8m through ground conditions of clay and siltstone. Joe says for the Korumburra Trunk Sewer upgrade project for Harris Civil, Pezzimenti Trenchless was engaged by South Gippsland Water to complete various works. The overall project scope comprised of approximately 172m of 900m gravity sewer that required microtunnelling.
Pezzimenti Trenchless installed a 618mm OD Superlit GRP jacking pipe with the bores measuring 74m and 98m. These were installed at a depth of 5m, through ground conditions of siltstone, which proved to be another challenge for the Pezzimenti team.
“The dedication our team shows when it comes to completing a project, however big or small under any circumstance, in an efficient and effective manner, is why we’ve stood the test of time.”
It was through this dedication that enabled the Pezzimenti Trenchless team to complete the works within three weeks. Since 1957, Pezzimenti Trenchless has positioned itself at the forefront of the trenchless industry through its laser-guided microtunnelling system.
