When three into one won't go

The project comprised the installation of three separate 180mm electric ducts each 60m in length under a service road within a factory complex. Accuracy was essential to avoid drains, electric ducts and other closely installed services throughout the bores.

This was a tricky project. As one of the images shows, the drill head is just below an electric duct that the client had exposed. We would usually install these ducts as a trefoil (all three strapped together in one shot) but, due to the constrained working area, the solution was to install each duct separately.
