Cable Ploughing / Cable Trenching & Top Cutting

Cable Plouging and Trenching Services suitable for a wide range of projects including Duct and Pipe Ploughing. HMC has both the experience and equipment necessary to ensure Trenching Projects are completed efficiently and accurately.

We can create trench widths ranging from 125mm to 600mm wide and to a depth of 1.8m.

Cable ploughing is a modern trenchless technology delivering fast and efficient laying cables, pipes and fibre optics with minimal ground damage. The highly skilled and experienced workforce successfully operate specialist equipment to achieve safe installations of pipes and cables below ground. Because Cable Plough causes minimal disruption to the ground’s geological structure, it offers a significant reduction in time, money and risk for the client and contractor – cable ploughing also operates very effectively on soft ground and marshland and has the ability to work on almost any terrain and manoeuvre around most obstacles.

Added to this, as it cuts, installs and back-fills the cable trench – all in one operation – the Cable Plough’s method eliminates any risk of trench-collapse and associated health and safety concerns. Ploughing cables provides a huge increase in productivity compared to conventional utility working methods.
