ADVANCED TRENCHLESS TECHNOLOGY
Whether you want to expand your pipeline network, make connections to the end user or renew pipelines - all of this can be done underground without having to break up the ground. The NODIG technology makes valuable contribution thanks to its ecological and economic advantages.
So „simple & easy“ is not just a catchphrase, but a promise that we give to our customers and business partners. We have made „simple & easy“ part of our DNA. Therefore everything we develop, plan and implement today must be simple and easy to understand.
ECONOMICAL & ECOLOGICAL
The economic and ecological advantages of trenchless technology over open construction are obvious:
INNOVATIVE & RELIABLE
The mole technology from TRACTO stands for uncompromising quality "Made in Germany" and technical finesse down to the last detail. The high manufacturing quality is achieved, among other things, by high-quality materials and elaborate tempering processes. Our durable and flexible NODIG systems are designed for maximum product and application diversity, low wear and tear and maximum reliability in practical use. Innovative technical solutions and a comprehensive selection of clever accessories guarantee maximum productivity and economy in pipe installation.
VERSATILE & FLEXIBLE
Our unique NODIG product portfolio covers the complete range of trenchless pipeline construction for supply and disposal. Our versatile NODIG systems and sophisticated accessories offer solutions for all cases. Be it soil displacement hammers or mini drilling rigs for installing house connections and short pipes, horizontal rammers for pipeline construction, HDD drilling rigs for crosssings underneath traffic and waterways or bursting rigs for renewing pipes - even fout of manholes. Because it is our aim not only to offer reliable technology, but complex and flexible solutions.
Whether you want to expand your pipeline network, make connections to the end user or renew pipelines - all of this can be done underground without having to break up the ground. The trenchless NODIG technology is used in the construction of pipeline networks for water, gas, electricity, telecommunications, district heating, fiber optic networks, e-mobility, pipeline construction and wastewater disposal.
The NODIG technology makes a valuable contribution especially with regard to the supply security of the increasingly complex pipeline infrastructure, such as the provision of drinking water and fast Internet or the energy supply, thanks to its ecological and economic advantages. Thanks to consistent technical developments in machine technology and accessories, there is now a trenchless solution for practically every type of pipe laying or renovation. And no matter what this NODIG solution looks like in concrete terms, trenchless pipeline construction is generally more environmentally friendly, sustainable and economical than open construction.
How do pipelines for water and gas, or indeed fiber optic cables, get under the ground? The obvious way is by digging a trench. But TRACTO-TECHNIK GmbH & Co. KG offers a different solution—using equipment for trenchless pipe laying that doesn’t require tearing up streets and sidewalks. TRACTO has continuously refined this technology. Today, the company takes advantage of big data to offer innovative, digital solutions to customers around the world, to increase reliability, and to optimize drilling processes.
The TRACTO GRUNDOPIT PS40 Mini HDD rig was the star turn at leading leisure park, Chessington World of Adventures, recently when it was craned into place to complete the underground installation of two x 110mm drainage pipes.
A TRACTO Mini Olympus GRUNDORAM pipe rammer was recently deployed to a site in Derbyshire to ram a 325mm steel casing under the concrete foundations of a new production plant. The casing was required to host a 225mm HDPE conduit to carry away rainwater from the downpipes of roof guttering on the new building.
Drainage is always a critical element when constructing a new housing development and the landowner must understand the water course under the land to plan the evacuation of excess water. The project managers of a new housing estate in Barnstaple, Devon identified that the capacity of a 600mm concrete culvert on the site was not sufficient to prevent flooding.
The Main-Danube-Canal (MDC) runs over a length of 171 km in Bavaria and connects the Main and Danube rivers from Bamberg to Fürth and Nuremberg to Kelheim. With its small but beautiful harbour, the town of Fürth lies on the banks of the canal over a length of just under 13 km. In 1970 a harbour bridge was built here as a traffic connection between the two districts of Atzenhof and Unterfarnbach, also acting as a support for various supply lines for the city. Today, after more than 50 years, this harbour bridge is really in need of renovation and may even have to be demolished.
When something goes wrong at the jobsite, rapid action is needed. Trenchless technology is primarily leveraged for the installation of underground utilities, creating the least amount of surface disruption possible. But what happens when freshly installed pipelines actually need to be removed – due to damages, for instance? In such cases as well, a pipe rammer is the means of choice – and can become the driller’s best friend in a blink. Especially, if it’s immediately available.
