Rivercrossing in Oxfordshire using the Grundodrill

Oct 01, 2009

Options Utility Services Ltd carry out under crossing of the river Cherwell using their recently accquired Grundodrill HDD rig.

As part of Scottish & Southern’s ongoing commitment to upgrade their existing distribution network, a section of overhead power line at Bletchingdon, Oxfordshire, was identified as needing replacement. This overhead cable passed over an area of leisure and recreation across the River Cherwell which was 30 metres in width. For safety reasons the client decided that this cable should be taken down and installed 6 Metres beneath the river bed.
