Danaher & Walsh APS has continued its investment in state-of-the-art trenchless pipeline repair technology with the purchase of environmentally-friendly new equipment.

APS has acquired a further IMS Micro Automatic Plus robotic cutter. This sophisticated, remote-control cutting robot allows complex repairs to be undertaken to damaged pipelines without requiring excavation.

Additionally, Danaher & Walsh APS has recently purchased a next generation high-pressure jetter. The Andy Guest 3 Series petrol powered jetter is quieter, lighter and more fuel-efficient than previous diesel powered models, and meets Stage V emissions regulations.

The new generation jetter will help towards lowering the firm's carbon footprint. Danaher & Walsh is a CEMARS accredited organisation. CEMARS (Certified Emissions Measurement And Reduction Scheme) is the globally recognised standard for carbon emission measurement and reduction and is accredited to ISO 14064-1. 

Speaking about the new equipment, Danaher & Walsh's SHEQ Manager Sue Southam said: "As a company we’re committed to reducing our CO² footprint and a current challenge is to achieve CEMARS Gold standard. This latest generation technology will help us towards this goal."
