• What are we doing?

     

    The delivery of the iCore solution is split into two elements:

    Element 1 focuses on design, development and manufacture of a keyhole located and operated pipe installation system that will install PE pipes in the size range of 25mm through to 90mm. Specifically a range of Long Handle Tooling is being developed to install and remove a service connections as required.

    Element 2  includes design, development and manufacture of a mains replacement insertion system for live or dead insertion of pipes (63mm through to 180mm diameter) inside existing metallic pipes from a 600mm diameter cored keyhole excavation.
