Presented with new difficulties in pipeline removal, engineers at Enereco asked themselves how we could remove pipelines without excavation, ìn other words, trenchless. Jump ahead to 2015, and our patented Trenchless Pipeline Removal system won the Global Petroleum Show’s Innovation in Technologies Award.
Please check out the videos below for a better understanding of how TPR works.

The abandonment of unused pipeline is an important issue. Abandonment can mean long term environmental costs, and with more stringent maintenance regulations, economic costs too.
The replacement and removal of pipelines or sections of pipelines is more and more relevant as the world’s pipeline infrastructure ages. And replacing or removing pipeline in sensitive areas presents even more critical issues.
Based on these considerations Enereco developed the TPR, Trenchless Pipeline Removal, the only trenchless pipeline removal system in the world.
The TPR has already been successfully tested, and more tests are being carried out to verify our recent modifications to the original technology, introduced to make the TPR process even more effective and applicable to even more diametres of pipe. Complete pilot projects are expected to be carried out in early 2016.
If you are interested in TPR get in touch with us. We will be happy to discuss the developments and what this technology can do for your project.
