Showcase Company Company: Darwin Draincleaning / Darwin Hydro-Excavation Contact: Paul Kelly Location: Darwin, NT Tel: 0447 000 050 Email: pkelly@jetdraincleaning.com.au Darwin Hydro-Excavation is an Australian owned family business that has recently relocated to the Territory. With twenty plus years experience in the industry, Paul Kelly is bringing to the Top End something new in terms of size and capability. Darwin Hydro-Excavation offers a safe solution to digging and drain cleaning with their large hydro-excavation/combination truck. This vehicle has the capacity to hold six thousand litres of water and seven cubic metres of debris. The biggest hole currently dug with this equipment was eleven metres deep by two metres square and took approximately two days to complete. The equipment makes easy work of navigate around optic fibres, gas, water and sewer lines that may be present by having the ability to dig pot holes. The pot holes are approximately 1.2m deep and 15cm in diameter, these holes take on average 30 seconds to one minute to complete and give the operator the ability to identify underground amenities with ease. There are a large number of specially designed nozzles in use that assist in clearing different types of blockages from all types of drain networks. They have water operated root cutters and impact nozzles that have high impact carbide tipped bits which can reach speeds of up to 3000rpm and exert a force of up to 8 tonne. The hydro-excavation/combination truck is one of very few that operates in the Territory and offers a unique spin on an everyday requirement. www.icnnt.org.au Information for Business...
