Horizontal Directional Drilling “HDD”
Time & Location
About the Event
Over the past 20 years, Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) has become a well-established and industry accepted method for the installation of new communication cables (telephone, cable, fibre optics) and underground pipelines that transport potable water, sewerage and natural gas. HDD is an environmentally friendly pipeline construction method alternative to traditional open cut. Research has shown that HDD can reduce open cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80 percent and results in pipeline construction projects that are completed faster with less disruption to public and environment, especially is environmentally sensitive areas such as wetlands and river crossings.
