Location : 8 Upper Ballydugan Rd, Portadown, Craigavon BT63 5NU, Royaume-Uni Craigavon - Irlande du Nord

 Contractor: AG Wilson, UK

Service: Drinking water network

Initial problem (of the customer)

Our client, AG Wilson, tasked us with this drinking water network project in Northern Ireland, involving particularly hard rock. The customer sought a solution that was both faster and more economical than traditional methods.


The ST2 R1400 trencher was perfectly suited to this project's challenges. Capable of trenching in sometimes soft and sometimes hard ground, the trenching torque and power of the pics of this wheel allowed for passing through sometimes very hard areas.


Several kilometers of trench opening were carried out for many weeks, achieving several hundred meters per day. 


"We are proud to own this Marais’s trencher. It allows us to work in challenging ground conditions and speeds up trenching work. The after-sales and training provided by Marais are of high quality. They have always been there to answer our questions."

Machines :
