The suction excavator, an ideal machine for working in confined spaces

Suction over long distances and at great depth

The suction excavator fitted with special hoses makes it possible to access confined environments and to carry out suction operations efficiently over long distances and at great depth. These closed spaces were not designed for occupation by individuals moving around inside and are very often inaccessible using conventional tools as they are too narrow (cellars, tanks, ventilation spaces, tunnels, valve chambers, etc.). The hose systems allow work to be carried out on the surface, at depth or at height.

Operatives trained and protected for maximum safety

Our technicians are trained in the use of special techniques and equipped with individual breathing apparatus (BA) so as to be able to work in complete safety in these cramped environments where space is very restricted and there is a high risk of suffocation. Compliance with very strict safety rules are among the minimum requirements for carrying out work.
