Visit to the Singel (R10) directional drilling site

On Monday, 19 August 2019, the worksite was visited by members of the Impact Management Working Group (WGIM, an advisory body tasked with coordinating certain work projects in the city of Antwerp). In the initial stage of the Petrol-Zurenborg project, Elia, WGIM reached a number of agreements about the work’s implementation and devised various measures to limit disruption.
The participants in the worksite visit learned all about the directional drilling going on under the stretch of Singel (R10) between Kielsevest and Konijnenwei and saw first-hand how Elia uses this technique to cross busy intersections, railway lines or large obstacles with minimal impact on traffic and the local area.
