Trenchless Technology

McGovern Plant Hire Ltd are one of the most experienced and proficient operators of trenchless technology in Ireland, ever since we purchased our first Horizontal Directional Drilling Rig almost 10 years ago. Since then we have routinely updated our Directional Drilling Rigs and equipment, to ensure we are operating with the latest technology, while also maintaining Health & Safety, and environmental standards. Our Directional Drilling operators are specifically trained and experienced in the use of the technology. We also provide other trenchless technologies such as Pipe Bursting and moling to install pipe.

We use Trenchless Technology in the majority of the watermains projects we carry out and it is now becoming the preferred method of installation with Clients, Designers and operators. This is due to the many advantages the technology offers, when constructing watermains, and crossings for rivers, roads & bridges. These include,

  • Quicker installation and construction of pipelines or ducts
  • Environmentally safe, particularly at waterways and river crossings
  • No disturbance of above ground objects
  • Minimal traffic disruptions
  • Accurate placement of pipelines or ducts
  • Minimal reinstatement required
