Demolition of foundations - demolition of pipeline foundations in rough country

The Job:

Demolition of solid concrete foundations of a abandoned pipeline in a remote area in Japan.

The Requirements:

Dense, impassable vegetation prohibited the use of excavators and large demolition machines or equipment requiring transporters or generators.

The Solution:

Darda rock and concrete splitters, by contrast, were sufficiently compact to enable them to be transported to the site without any problem. The splitting cylinders were powered by a diesel-engine unit, enabling them to be used independently.
The foundations were initially split horizontally, then vertically, producing small easily transportable sections. In a difficult situation like this, the Darda method has proved to be an economical, timesaving option.
