Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD)
HDD is a specialist technique designed to install pipelines under obstructions; rivers, roads, canals, railways, runways, estuaries, Sites of Special Scientific Interest, farmland and even other pipelines. Diameters range from 6” to 48”, with lengths from 300m to 1800m.
The principle is simple, and yet the skill and experience required to get it absolutely right is significant. In the simplest terms, HDD installation is achieved in just three stages:
First a pilot hole is drilled.
The hole is reamed out to the required diameter to accommodate the product pipe.
Finally the pipeline is pulled or pushed through the pre-drilled hole.
In addition to undertaking projects we also hire out specialist horizontal directional drilling
equipment. Please contact our Head Office in Wakefield with your specific requirements.
