Horizontal Directional Drilling

A Versatile Problem-Solver

Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is a very versatile steerable system and one of the most common trenchless installation methods, capable of installing pipelines and conduits below ground using a surface-mounted drill rig. 

The rig sits on top of the ground, and a pilot rod is installed along the alignment. Once the pilot comes out on the other side, a reaming head is attached to the drill rods. Then the hole is enlarged until it has been enlarged enough to allow the pulling in of the new pipe or conduit that is desired to be installed at this location.

Benefits of Horizontal Directional Drilling:

  • Cost-effective due to little to no surface damage
  • Minimal setup
  • Short drilling and construction times
  • Simple technique
  • Wide, versatile application range
