Vacuum Excavation, or Vac-Ex is generally used as a term to describe the safe exposure of live utilities beneath the ground that could be damaged by more traditional means such as mini diggers or shovels. The process has been carried out for decades all over the world but with limited use due to the harshness of the process on machinery. It has only been in the last 20 years that bespoke machinery has been tailor-made to carry out such a process.
In October 2019, we were delighted to introduce the first Vac-ex air-vac “Aidan” to the Irish Market.
