Introduction

MGF have supplied specialist hire company Trench Shoring New Zealand (TSNZ) for the last 8 years during an excellent period of growth. During this time, TSNZ have expanded their fleet and added a variety of MGF equipment, including hydraulic brace systems and the breakthrough range GRiPSHORE.

TSNZ proposed a temporary works solution for major sewer upgrades in Auckland, New Zealand. General Manager, Frank Swanberg identified hydraulic brace systems as the most effective solution for tank installations.


The Solution

The contractor required an open pit to work on storm water and sewer diversion upgrades as part of the Waterview Dual 3 Lane Tunnel Project.

As a result, MGF delivered a 203 series brace system, 200 series strut, 60 tonne cross struts and multiple extensions to suit the specific dimensions of the cofferdam.


The Verdict

TSNZ have found they are recommending hydraulic systems more frequently to local clients due to ease of

installation, providing stronger working environments and overall reduction in time.
