Working around Pipelines is extremely dangerous and if damage is made to the pipeline, costs can be in the millions of dollars, damage to the environment can be catastrophic and negative press and law suits can cripple or bankrupt your company.
Zero excavation is allowed around pipelines today except with the use of highly skilled individuals using Hydro-Vacs. Due to the depth of most pipelines, additional sloping, benching/stepping and grading is generally required and never possess an issue with our units and their extended reach. Our team members have all the required safety training to allow them to work around pipelines and in deep excavation or with potential H2S hazards. Platinum is also able to keep pits dry of ground water for x-ray technicians, welders, pipe fitters and any other required technicians or inspectors.
