Use of Vac Ex to excavate cables

In order to excavate and expose (non-energised) 11kV cables at Limmo we hired a vacuum excavator rather than using hand tools.

The work required was to remove sand from a concrete pit to allow operatives to access the pit and work on the cables.

The Vac-Ex uses an air pick to disturb the sand and this sand is then removed by suction into the unit.
