Connecting Power to People.™
Trenchless construction, including HDD, can be the most challenging and time consuming aspect of any project. With capabilities ranging from 2" to 74", we specialize in mitigating the challenges that can accommodate trenchless installations.
Microtunneling is the most rapidly advancing form of trenchless pipeline installation. With the major technological improvements, our teams at Melcar are dedicated to staying on the forefront of these advancements so that technology can be maximized on our partners projects.
We specialize in turnkey project completion and landfall applications including offshore wind & power. Melcar brings extensive knowledge to each project when it comes to cable landings, marine operations and outfalls for offshore energy production.
OFFSHORE WIND & POWER
We understand that geo-technical conditions often limit the methods that can be employed on a given project. That is why Melcar is prepared to support any installation method that is required, including large diameter tunnel installations up to 126".
From conceptual design, to survey and engineering, to design and build, trust us to do the heavy lifting for you. As a service provider, Melcar understands the importance of being able to deliver a turnkey project support package to all of our industry partners. Our engineers provide our partners with bore plans and calculations that ensure the highest quality workmanship is displayed in the field.
ENGINEERING, SURVEY & DESIGN
From onshore to offshore, Melcar is invested in the renewable energy future of our world. Providing sensible solutions for wind farm development, MV/cable laying, solar farm development, and civil development support, Melcar is invested in the green energy future of our world.
With installation capabilities ranging from 8" to 96", Melcar is able to provide auger boring and guided boring services to our project partners. By offering a turnkey solution, we provide our clients with a completed product ready to be tied into the main line.
Wether it is in support of a trenchless project or a full civil installation, Melcar is prepared to produce a completed plant as part of our Turn Key Promise. Trust us to take on the costs and responsibilities of project development.
From densely populated urban areas to remote lease roads, hydro-excavation or "soft dig" capabilities mitigate major safety risks when excavating on or around existing utilities. See how Melcar uses hydro-excavation to maximize site performance.
Having the capability to use pipe ramming as an installation and extraction method offers our clients additional peace of mind. We utilize hammers for surface casing installations, pilot tube extractions, railroad crossings, and much more.
Melcar employs ASME certified fabricators and welders for our shop and mobile operations. Outfitted with the latest fabrication tools including lathes, pipe benders, plasma cutters and more, we design and build our own tooling as well as support site operations by retaining these capabilities in-house.
WELDING & FABRICATION
As an additional part of our Turnkey Project Promise, our pipe fusion professionals are certified to fuse C-900 FPVC, gas pipe, and HDPE. Let us show you how our turnkey project commitment provides our partners with the security they need and the peace of mind they desire.
