Moberly River Crossing

Moberly River Crossing

Scope

Severe erosion and flooding resulted in the exposure and deterioration of a pipeline across the Moberly River in British Columbia.

Michels installed a new 500 metre crossing of NPS 30 pipe beneath the river using horizontal drilling technology (HDD). HDD was utilized for its installation, as this trenchless technology is a safe, cost effective, and environmentally considerate method. With respect for environmental surroundings, the removal was completed with no in-stream activity.

An innovation on Michels' part produced an unconventional solution: using an ultra-high pressure water cutter, Michels severed the exposed abandoned pipe segments from the inside. The removal was an environmental and financial success.

Projects
