From pipelines to power systems

Need expert underground utility services—and a job done right the first time? We work around energized medium voltage cables almost daily and are highly experienced in this type of work. We are often called upon to place split duct over cables exposed by others during various construction projects, rebuild/relocate damaged pole laterals with live medium voltage cables, and break and rebuild duct banks containing energized plant. We have installed kilometres of conduit in the vicinity of existing cable, often direct buried.
