Non-intrusive cable and tank extraction

Construction projects often involve removing decommissioned underground cables and tanks. This process can be time-consuming, dangerous and potentially cause spills and other harm to the environment.

See the examples below for how this company devised a solution:

  • Company developed NICE (Non-Intrusive Cable Extraction) equipment to remove underground decommissioned fluid-filled cables without the need for opening trenches.
  • NICE withdraws oil cooled cables without spillage of oil and environmental damage.
  • NICE can replace the buried cables with new ducting and cable at the same time, saving time and costs.
  • Also developed NITE (Non-Intrusive Tank Extraction) to remove buried decommissioned oil tanks.
  • NITE is an attachment to a 360-degree excavator to allow the extraction of tanks in one piece from above ground without excavation or spillage.

These techniques mitigate the risk of oil spillage, significantly reducing the site’s environmental impact. The equipment also establishes safer working methods for operatives.
