The UEA Trenchless Division has been awarded a significant Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) job on the South Coast of NSW. The overall project aims to replace the existing submarine cable running under Lake Conjola. Demand during the area’s peak tourist season has been identified by the local electrical authority as a major risk to services. The underwater cable will be replaced by UEA Trenchless using HDD technology.
This month, UEA Trenchless Division will commence a significant Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) project at Moss Vale Road at Beaumont, a town adjacent to the tourist destination Kangaroo Valley in the Illawarra region of New South Wales.
In August 2013, UEA’s Trenchless Division was awarded a Design and Construct package of works for Hunter Water Corporation as part of the ‘Kooragang Industrial Water Scheme (KWIS).
UEA Trenchless has completed construction of a vital crossing as a part of a major infrastructure upgrade for a Sydney power authority in inner West Sydney. The project is preventative and has been scheduled to meet the requirement of replacing key cables supplying power to Sydney’s inner western suburbs before they become unreliable.
UEA Trenchless has successfully reached the revised half way point of transfer main installation works and is well on the way to having the directional drilling works for the PSP Appin Wastewater Scheme completed on time. Further to the contract works awarded earlier this year UEA has been asked to undertake an additional 2,006 metres of directional drilling due to changes in design requirements as well as several areas of environmental sensitivity.
Installation of the transfer main pipeline as part of the Appin Wastewater Scheme is almost complete with UEA successfully pulling in the final directional bore in early February 2012.
