Moling Services

As leading utility contractors in the North West, Utiliko are always at the forefront of the latest technologies. Trenchless installations through moling excavation are just one way we can minimise disruption to your business when carrying out water or utility installations on your property.

By avoiding the need for larger open cut trenches, moling is an ideal solution for installations in congested areas, environmentally sensitive locations, beneath waterways, existing structures or roads. This not only protects the existing features of your property, but can speed up installation where these features would otherwise need to be removed and replaced or repaired after open trenches have been built and filled in.

Moling requires the digging of small pits along the installation route, where the moling equipment can sit under the surface. The earth is then displaced precisely along the route required, underneath any existing features of the landscape. This creates a bore through with the new installation can be pulled through or deployed into, speeding up the installation of utility services along these lengths of excavated earth.

Where existing landscape features such as roads, buildings or watercourses would interfere with the creation of longer open cut trenches, moling is the latest industry standard installation technique. However, it is not suitable in all instances, particularly where longer runs are necessary. With decades of combined experience in utility installation, Utiliko are experts in assessing the exact needs of your project or installation. We can recommend the very best techniques that will make for the fastest completion of your project with the least possible disruption to your business, operations and the environment.
