The technology was developed and funded by the State of Styria. As far as we've been told, all rights / patents were sold and acquired by Layjet? Could you tell us more about that?

Correct. The road building experts from the Office of the Styrian Government were originally commissioned by Governor Hermann Schützenhöfer with developing this new, revolutionary laying method. The patented LAYJET technology was then developed by Austrian road building experts in cooperation with the Technical Universities of Vienna and Graz as well as DW-Tech Maschinenbau GmbH, today representing the by far most gentle method of laying in the road body. In 2017, Rainer Dunst purchased the patents and founded LAYJET, which has been marketing the technology internationaly ever since.

Does LAYJET only lay conduits for fibre optics cables or also for power, water?

Generally speaking, the LAYJET method can also be used for power and water pipes. Due to its maximum laying depth of 70 cm, however, this is currently only done in exceptional cases. Our main focus is on laying conduit for fibre optics cables.

Do you also sell the machines?

No. What we sell is the service of laying conduit using the LAYJET technology with all previous and follow-up work incl. digital location documentation.

How much does one running metre cost?

That depends on many factors and can't be answered broadly. Optimally, the route is inspected by one of our construction managers to make sure that it is suitable for the LAYJET technology. We generally don't provide price estimates on the phone. Generally speaking, however, LAYJET is up to 50% cheaper than the conventional, open-trench method.

Does LAYJET only lay the conduit or does it also blow in the fibre?

Our expertise is in the gentle laying of fibre optics conduit in the road body. The respective operator is then responsible for actually blowing the fibre. Upon request, we are able to offer the entire range of services required and draw on the expertise of partner companies to do so.

How many metres can you lay per day using your method?

The unique LAYJET technology increases the conventional method’s daily output of 300 metres to up to 3 kilometres.

What are LAYJET's capacities? How many LAYJET crews are there? Are you putting together additonal LAYJET crews? If so, how long does it take to put another crew together?

We currently have six crews while constantly extending our capacities. It takes us six to twelve months to put together another crew.

What's LAYJET's minimum contract size? What's the smallest contract size that LAYJET can even be used for?

Whether or not we accept a contract and whether or not a cooperation takes place, does not necessarily depend on the size of the contract but many different factors. We are able to implement smaller projects as we strive to summarise several smaller construction sites and process them in one go.

To answer this, it's best to get in touch with our employees.

How can a construction company that works with large tractors claim to be entirely carbon neutral?

LAYJET regularly has its ecological footprint calculated by renowned STRATECO from Graz and contractually agreed to make the entire quantities of CO2 emitted by the LAYJET method carbon neutral by means of purchasing Humus Certificates from the Kaindorf ecological region.

On top of that all carbon emissions that cannot be avoided, such as those produced by the company building, air and car travel as well as other operational processes are compensated. Actually, LAYJET voluntarily assumes six-figure costs annually and accepts its responsibility for environmental and climate protection as well as a responsible handling of resources.

You are currently working in front of our house/in our community How can I get a house connection? When can I expect my house connection to be established? Who can I talk to?

When end customers can expect their house connections to be established and how they can get them specifically depends on the client and is outside of LAYJET's sphere of influence.
