Horizontal Directional Drilling
Why Choose horizontal directional drilling?
Horizontal Directional Drilling is a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipe, conduit or cable in a shallow arc along a prescribed bore path by using a surface launched drilling rig, with minimal impact on the surrounding area. HDD drilling is used when trenching or excavating is not practical or the area is environmentally sensitive. It is suitable for a variety of soil conditions and jobs including road, landscape and river crossings.
Mole technology Vs Open Trenching
‘Mole technology’ is widely used in civil engineering. Its share compared to open trenching is ever increasing because the underground installation and renewal of supply and (disposal) pipes bears major technical and economical advantages
These advantages are due to excavation and reinstatement work being almost omitted and the short construction times and show especially when producing property service connections and when crossing much-frequented roads.
Trenchless installation protects the environment. This means no surface disruption, no problems with inhabitants, minimal excavation, fewer construction machines plus avoidance of traffic jams, diversions and repair work, as well as low emission of noise, (CO2) and fine dust.
