Trenchless Technologies

VolkerTrenchless Solutions is a market leader in advanced underground drilling techniques, particularly horizontal directional drilling (HDD), using our state of the art equipment portfolio to drill paths for cables, pipes, casings, ducts and other subterranean assets. There are many factors that influence selection of the optimum drilling technique, including customer requirements, the distance to be covered, environmental considerations, geology and soil conditions. Once these factors have been considered, the most suitable technique and equipment will be proposed by our expert, in-house team before designs are finalised and physical work commences.

Horizontal Directional Drilling

Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) is a low impact method of installing underground utilities along a defined underground path using a surface-launched drilling rig. HDD offers significant environmental advantages over traditional trenching or cut and cover techniques, particular when surface disturbance must be kept to a minimum and sensitive ecological receptors are in close proximity.
