Imperial Pipe Carrier

One of the things that I always wondered about as an engineer was exactly what type of infrastructure rebuilding plan the Imperial Senate had.  In comparison to our planet, I have been creating Star Warish type of infrastructure tools that the Imperial Army would have to use to maintain infrastructure.  Assuming that pipeline relining happened on Tatooine, I created a pipeline relining cart that is used to insert steel liners into existing pipes.  It's been modified with droids and other technology and of course a Storm Trooper contractor is driving the thing.  To see what relining looks like on our planet, click this link at the San Diego County Water Authority Website.
Here the carrier is carrying a steel liner.

Hydraulic driven arms expand the pipe liners allowing the liner to be securely placed in the pipe and welded.
