The experiences of PPI CHROBOK S.A. gained from Direct Pipe pipelines installations
Direct Pipe technology is one of the currently developing drilling technologies that enables trenchless construction of transmission pipelines. It gains more and more popularity, and the number of designed crossings increases every year. The speaker will present the company’s experience gained while deploying all of the Direct Pipe crossings so far (in 2016-2019). The installations were deployed in various ground conditions on lengths from 300 to 700 m and diameters of 1000 and 1200 mm. Speaker will also show the possibilites available thanks to this technology.
