Michels Canada: Leading the way in trenchless construction\
Michels Canada extended the limits of trenchless construction in Canada by using horizontal directional drilling (HDD) to complete a 3,540-metre crossing in Burlington, Ontario, under the Hidden Lake Golf Club. The installation is part of Imperial’s Waterdown to Finch Project, a proactive replacement of approximately 63-kilometres of the Sarnia Products Pipeline between the Waterdown pump station in rural Hamilton and the storage facility in Toronto’s North York area.
The Hidden Lake HDD is the longest successful HDD installation in Canada to date, surpassing the previous record of 2,195 metres, also set by Michels Canada.
A 12-inch steel pipe was installed to a maximum depth of 70 metres below the surface and pulled into place in three sections over a 40-hour period.
