Boreline installation using a mobile crane
In this particular project, two submersible pumps had to be installed quickly and efficiently for a temporary dewatering job and Boreline was the obvious choice.
There were site restrictions that would not allow the Boreline to be installed in the traditional method, ie. where it is laid on the ground and installed horizontally by being attached to a vehicle.
Instead, a mobile crane was deployed at the wells and this would be used to install the pumps and Boreline to the required depth.
Below are some pictures to indicate the procedure when installing Boreline vertically. An advantage is that mobile cranes are readily available and are sometimes needed to lift heavy pumps into position. But in this case, when the drop pipe is Boreline, the project becomes easier, simpler and much safer.
The pump and power cable have already been attached to the Boreline along the entire length. The lengths were then folded and packed onto the trailer for transport to the well.
