Trenching vs Blasting
For many years the primary way to excavate for a pipeline through hard rock was by blasting.

More recently, trenching has become the favoured method in many situations as it offers several clear advantages:

  • A much smaller and neater path is cut through the terrain.
  • Less overall ground disturbance
  • The excavated material can often be used for backfill
  • More efficiency and speed in many situations
  • Increased safety when working close to infrastructure and urban areas (less risk of liability)
