Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD)
Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) is a form of trenchless construction that is used to install pipeline, conduit and utilities deep underground â€“ covering distances up to several kilometers in length. It is ideal for installations under challenging obstacles (crossings) such as highways, water bodies, utility and pipeline corridors, parkland, ecologically sensitive areas and marine applications.
