Innovative and environmentally friendly trenchless replacement of water and gas connections
There are hundreds of thousands of aging water and gas pipes in Europe that need to be replaced, but this is costly, time consuming and burdensome. It is extremely important that the public utility industries use innovations to solve these problems. New techniques, such as the trenchless method to replace water and gas connections using the KPP Kobus pipe winch, is a valuable tool to achieve faster, safer and cheaper results. Kobus offers a quick and inexpensive technique that reduces interference, removes old decommissioned pipes, minimizes the risk of destruction of existing underground infrastructure is safer than other methods. And most importantly, it introduces a new PE pipe in place of the old one and secures the tightness of the system for many years.
