As part of our philosophy of continuous improvement, UCS invests heavily in the research and development of improved construction techniques and tools.
Our new winch design is finely calibrated with electronic control. By constantly measuring the tension of cable while it is laid down, the winch enables operators to exercise meticulous control to ensure the cable installed to the exact requirements of the utilities. Our cable laying practices prevent cable installation damage.
We also use the world-class Dyneema hauling rope for added safety and operational performance — the world’s strongest fibre and one that is used routinely for major shipping and military functions.
