The Australian National Broadband Network (NBN) is believed to increase the demands for underground borers and air compressed equipment, says Air Powered Services . Air Powered Services offers products and services in underground borers and compressed air equipment, which are suitable to assist in the NBN roll-out.
The National Broadband Network is focused in delivering cost effective infrastructure across Australia through combining fibre, wireless and satellite Internet technology. In the coming months, the national Government operation will start being outsourced to external contractors.
Underground borers are the ideal choice in assisting the NBN roll-out says Murray Closter, Managing Director of Air Powered Services. Underground borers are suited for underground installations of sewage pipes, telephone, gas and electricity lines. They provide contractors with more economical and efficient alternatives to the blast-and-clear excavation methods.
“It will minimise the frustration caused by road works, as extended surface construction is no longer necessary. As the majority of crushing and screening would be done underground, the waste brought to the surface will also be reduced,” says Closter.
“This is a significant example of the services that we can offer to service providers, who are up for the Federal Government’s new challenge”.
Closter is confident that the Government would choose underground borers as the preferred option.
