A meticulously prepared HDD project in a protected area of outstanding natural beauty was undertaken to connect the first tidal marine electrical turbine in Western Europe with a high voltage cable to the national supply network. Strangford Lough Marine Turbine Cable was completed to time, cost and in full compliance with all environmental and sustainability requirements.


A totally new technique combining features from pipe jacking and HDD to give a one step pipe installation method for use in difficult ground conditions where borehole collapse could occur. Herrenknecht Direct Pipe is a steerable cutting head which can deal with bolders, hard rock and unstable soils with the product pipe being thrust in behind it.
