VAC UK has thankfully found that our equipment has remained popular throughout the coronavirus epidemic as the vacuum excavator is ideal for getting work done whilst complying with the two metre social distancing rule.

The less people working on the site and the further away they are from each other the better from a coronavirus perspective.

There are many jobs including.

• Pipelaying
• Repairs of faulty and burst mains
• Shaft sinking
• Timber headings
• Exposing services
• Digging out of culverts and embankments
• And many other specialist civil engineering works

Where the use of a vac ex could be the differentiator for whether you can comply with the two metre rule or not.

VAC UK can supply up to 200m of hosing to enable the vacuum excavator to dig out of remote hard to access and confined locations without putting too many people too close together at risk and in close proximity to each other.

If you’re working on critical essential infrastructure in the water, gas, power, telecoms, airport, highways or rail sectors and want to know how VAC UK can help you comply with the 2 metre rule then feel free to contact us.
