Abstract
In the past several methods and systems were developed for trenchless installation of pipelines in the ground to cross sensitive areas above. In the field of large and long pipe installations pipe jacking, segmental lining and horizontal directional drilling technology have been proven as most efficient construction methods. A new technology the easy pipe method combines elements of pipe jacking and horizontal directional drilling established construction methods with innovative components extending the range of applications.
