How Hydroexcavation Is Helping the Climate Crisis

Our climate is changing and the process has been attracting attention towards developing efficient and environment-friendly technologies for energy-intensive industries, such as the construction industry. One of the most important and most energy-intensive processes in construction is excavation – small wonder that engineers have worked so hard to come up with a technology to make that phase more efficient and less harmful for the environment. The result was hydrovac – here is how the daylighting technology can help with environment protection endeavours:

  • Shortened completion time – the hydrovac process is popular for the extraordinary efficiency it offers. A hydrovac machine takes hours to do work that would take days, should it be done with a conventional excavator, which also means that the disruption that the natural environment has to endure during the project is kept to the minimum;
  • Reduced needs for water – the hydrovac process does use water to break down the soil in the excavation area, but the combination of water and high pressure is a very powerful one, so the method uses very little water;
  • The process reduces the risk of accidents and contaminations – the hydrovac process is often used for safely revealing hidden utility lines. Being a non-invasive method, hydrovac machines preserve the safety of the excavation site at all time and keeps the revealed utilities safe, too, ensuring that the surrounding area is not accidentally contaminated.
