Vacuum excavation in UK & Ireland
Vacuum excavation (suction excavation) is an innovative solution to traditional excavation methods. This technology produces powerful suction driven by high powered fans allowing safe excavation to take place.
Vacuum excavation is considered best practice for safely finding and seeing underground utilities, reducing by more than half the chance of damaging buried utilities.
Vacuum excavators eliminate the need for costly and time-consuming manual labour. Buried pipe systems do not suffer damage and output is up to sixteen times of that achieved by conventional excavation.
