Imagine being able
to use existing sewer
manholes to lay
networks for electricity,
gas, water and fibre optic
networks without the
need to dig up roadways
or the front gardens of
private properties.
S
WISS PRODUCER of trenchless
pipe- and cable-laying equipment,
TERRA AG, has developed such a
manhole HDD drill that is able to
undertake directional bores from manhole
to manhole for mainline installations and
from manhole to all nearby homes for lateral
house connections.
At 0.8 m deep, you can lay telephone
and fibre optic cables, at a 1.2 m depth
fresh water lines, and at a 1.6 m depth gas
or power lines. This innovative pipe-laying
method was developed over a two-year period
in close cooperation with the French water
supplier SADE. The TERRA MINI-JET MJS 1
600 is a manhole HDD drill for directional
bores in lengths up to 50 m with a minimum
turning radius of 15 m. The directional bore
can be reamed in several steps up to 300
mm even in hard ground. The TERRA MINIJET MJS 1 600 is equipped with a torque of
1 600 Nm, as well as thrust and pull-back
forces of 60 kN (6 t). The MJS 1 600 can drill
from manholes with an internal diameter of
1.0 m and can fit through manhole entrances
of just 0.62 m. Where the entrance is smaller
than this, the manhole cover frame can be
removed. First, the drill’s bed frame is lowered into place in the manhole and tightened
hydraulically in position.
After this, the manhole drill is lifted vertically through the manhole cover and bolted
onto the bed frame. The entire operation of
the TERRA MINI-JET MJS 1 600 is controlled
from the surface where the operator – along
with the control station, rod magazine and
ABOVE The TERRA MINI-JET MJS 1 600
positioned in a manhole
rod lift – are positioned. There is no requirement to enter the manhole during drilling and
back reaming work.
The operator inserts a new drill rod into
the rod lift. The rod lift transfers it down
into the manhole and positions it in the
drilling machine.
The new drill rod is screwed into the last
drill rod. Inductive sensors make this operation possible even where the operator does
not have a view into the manhole. The rod lift
may also be positioned at an angle over the

MJS 1 600 can drill bores up to 50 m
with a bending radius of 15 m and
backreaming up to ø300 mm, enabling
drilling from manhole to manhole for
main network piping and from manhole to

drilling machine where the manhole entrance
is not located directly on top of the drilling
machine. Drilling and back reaming takes
place with bentonite, drilling fluid pressure
of 0 to 55 bar and fluid volumes of 0 to 38
l/min. This makes the TERRA MINI-JET MJS
1 600 a small but extremely effective horizontal directional drilling (HDD) machine.

TRENCHLESS TECHNOLOGY
A review of SASTT
IMIESA will be publishing regular contributions
from the members of SASTT, as the adoption
of the technology is rapidly growing in the local
context. Andries Lotz, president of SASTT,
explains why this is the case.
T
RENCHLESS TECHNOLOGY (TT) is
technology for the servicing, rehabilitation and replacement of existing,
and the construction of new, public utilities and other services underground
without the digging of trenches, including
the development of all kinds of underground
mapping techniques, tunnelling devices and
specialist machinery, materials and equipment. The Southern African Society for
Trenchless Technology (SASTT) was formed
as far back as 1992 and is an important
body for advancing the science and practice
of TT for public benefit. It also promotes
education, training, study and research in
the industry.
SASTT is also aware of the necessity
of maintaining a healthy environment and
addressing the ever-changing needs of the
community. Its mission is to promote, from
an ethical and neutral base, the use of TT
for providing and maintaining underground
services with minimal surface and environmental disruption.
The latest SASTT newsletter, membership
information and benefits, constitution and
code of conduct, as well as industry-related
activities and information, can be found on
the SASTT website: www.sastt.org.za
Membership of the society comprises mainly councils, consultants, contractors and
suppliers that are making use of trenchless
methods to carry out various services. Being
a member of SASST automatically qualifies
one with affiliation with the International
Society of Trenchless Technology (ISTT).
SASTT aims to promote TT and also to
develop SASTT standards for various trenchless methods. The first standard for slip lining has recently been completed.
SASTT was also recently recognised by the
Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) as
a voluntary association (category C) in terms
of the Engineering Professions Act. In 2009
and 2010, SASTT had an exhibition stand
at the IMESA Conference that proved to be
very informative.

Water scarcity has
become a global
debate. As such, the
following quote is very
apt: “The next war in
the Middle East will be
fought over water, not
politics”.
T
HE SAME man was also quoted as
saying: “Water will be more important
than oil this century” – Former United
Nations secretary general Boutros
Boutros Ghali – 2003. Consequently, it is
ironic that a petroleum company would play
an integral part in providing the necessary
investment which would see the construction
of the largest salt water desalination plant in
South Africa.
The southern Cape town of Mossel Bay has
been hard hit by recent scourges of drought.
Consequently, the town’s water supply source
has dropped to levels of 19%. As part of
a bold, but necessary emergency measure,
the construction of a R200 million salt water
desalination plant was approved and set for
construction in mid-June 2010. When completed, the plant will provide 15 million litres
of desalinated water per day, of which 5 million
litres will be allocated to co-sponsor PetroSA’s
synthetic fuels plant in Mossel Bay.
Along with the construction of the desalination plant, various pipeline infrastructure also
had to be installed to facilitate the distribution of this new supply. Owing to the critical
nature and stringent construction deadlines
inherent in such a pioneering project, various innovative construction techniques were
required to achieve these project outcomes.
Owing to traffic flow volumes and latent settlement often associated with open-cut construction across roadways, it was clear that
a more efficient and appropriate installation
method was required. The close proximity
of existing underground services also further
compounded the issues associated with conventional open-cut construction. Fortunately,
a trenchless installation alternative – which

ABOVE View of 800 mm-diameter pipe
and reamer ready for installation
LEFT Pipe-ramming slab constructed
prior to placing the steel pipe on the slab
met and exceeded all the client’s criteria –
was identified and approved as a feasible construction solution. The trenchless installation
of pipelines has long been at the forefront of
innovative and pioneering projects within the
construction industry. The myriad of solutions
available under the ambit of trenchless pipeline technology also affords engineers the
opportunity to design for specific applications
using the appropriate trenchless techniques,
depending on design requirements.
The pipeline route was established and
a main contractor was appointed to install
these pipelines using conventional open-cut
techniques. Apart from the greenfields installations, various roads and railway lines also
had to be traversed with this new pipeline.
Horizontal directional drilling was selected as
the trenchless method of choice for the road
and rail crossings. The local roads authority required the new pressure pipelines to
be installed within a sleeve wherever a road
surface was being crossed. This meant
that the 630 mm-diameter class 16 HDPE
pipeline had to be housed within a larger 800
mm-diameter class 6 HDPE pipe. Specialist
trenchless pipeline contractor, TT Innovations,
was appointed to perform the various road
and railway installations .The installation of
both 800 mm-diameter pipes through a range
of existing services provided for a challenging
project. In the instance where the local railway
line was crossed, the 630 mm-diameter class
16 HDPE pipe was installed directly underground, without the need for a larger-diameter
sleeve pipe. A combined total length of 130
m of 630mm-diameter and 800 mm-diameter
HDPE pipe was installed at three different
locations.
At the centre of this new pipeline installation lies the reconfiguration and reuse of the
existing two reservoirs located close to the
desalination plant. Both the 3.4 and 4 Ml reservoirs were allocated for use with this project.
Instead of breaking down the existing structure
to connect the new pipeline to the reservoirs,
an innovative design team identified the potential for using trenchless techniques to mitigate
costly and risky structural alterations to these
reservoirs. Again, specialist trenchless pipeline contactor TT Innovations was approached
and an innovative solution was devised.
Pipe ramming was identified as the most
feasible installation method as this would
allow for the installation of a large-diameter
pipeline underneath the reinforced concrete
wall of each reservoir without creating any
voids around the installed pipe.
