Horizontal Directional drilling (HDD) also known as Directional Drilling or Trenchless installation is a cost effective method of installing underground infrastructure with minimal ground disturbance. This method will save you time and money by removing the massive reclamation costs that are inflicted with traditional open cut methods.
Directional Drilling uses machinery (a directional drill) and technology, that allows a team to string together drill stem (pipe), and steer a bit that is underground for distances as short as you need up to 500m or greater depending on the size of the drill. Making small corrections to steer horizontally and laterally, allow the operators to arrive at a specific location. For most acreage and farm applications a small reamer will replace the bit, and the product(s) that is required to be installed will be pulled back through the pilot hole (tunnel).
