Telia Finland uses micro-trenching to lay fibre in Kauniainen

Thursday 14 June 2018 | 11:48 CET | News

Telia Finland said it is using micro-trenching to lay fibre in Kauniainen, as this is up to three times faster than conventional excavation work. Telia had tested micro-trenching in Lansi-Pakki in Helsinki in summer 2017 with Empower TN,, which is now working as a contractor at the Kauniaisten Avoin Kuitu project.  Micro-trenching grooves are approximately 40 cm deep.

Micro-trenching increases safety and reduces environmental damage, said Telia. There is no open pit or heavy duty machinery. The carbon footprint will be smaller because land masses are moved less and no asphalt is needed to patch the street.
