Visser & Smit Hanab conducted a gas pipeline from Beverwijk to Wijngaarden for Gasunie NV. Therefore the Moerkapelle Ringvaart canal had to be crossed. This crossing would initially be implemented through a closed front drilling with a length of 33 meters. However, it would be complicated concerning to water resources, intersection of four existing sheet piling, crossing existing road and crosses or rerouting existing cables and pipelines.
Visser and Smit Hanab has therefore proposed to perform the intersection at an alternative, rather unique way, namely with an 'arc-drilling' (length 172 meters).
