Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) Rigs
Vermeer D300 x 500 HDD Rig
A very mobile and powerful HDD rig suitable for all ground conditions and catering for all utilities including oil and gas pipelines. Wire line tracking systems can be used in conjunction with this HDD rig for longer and deeper bores.
Vermeer D100 x 120 HDD Rig
An all round machine with on board 200 Gpm pump suitable for all ground conditions. Wire line tracking systems can be used in conjunction with this HDD rig for longer and deeper bores.
Vermeer D60 x 90 HDD Rig
With a footprint not much bigger than machines with half its power the Vermeer D60 x 90 is capable of bores in excess of 500 metres and can comfortably open holes of 24 inch diameter in soft, medium and hard formations. The D60 x 90 comes equipped with steering tool capability.
Vermeer D50 x 100 HDD Rig
A smaller all round rig capable of installing conduits in all ground conditions including softer rocks.
Vermeer D36 x 50 (16 tonne) HDD Rig
When you need a mid-sized drill with big features, look no further than the Vermeer D36x50. Its narrowly designed rack and pinion design helps to maintain a small footprint for access into congested areas. The D36x50 is built to perform a wide range of medium diameter, mod-to-long distance utility installations.
Ditchwitch AT3020 (7.5 tonne) HDD
The AT3020 All Terrain HDD system can steer, drill and back ream in just about any type of ground, including rock. With its narrow footprint this HDD rig is most suited for the installation of utilities in the tight confines of the urban street.
This self-contained hydraulically powered compact pipe bursting unit provides incredible power and speedy installation. Using the TT patented QuickLock bursting rods, cast iron, asbestos, concrete and ductile iron mains can be easily replaced with new polyethylene or PVC pipe – either size for size or up-sizing to a new internal diameter can be achieved.
Pilot Tube Microtunneling (Guided Boring Machine)
mts 1000 S/M/L Slurry Microtunneling System
This microtunneling system gives UEA the ability to install pipe in difficult soil conditions where ground water is present. It is suitable for small to medium diameters and short to medium length jacking distances.
In support of the HDD rigs UEA operates a number of drill mud handling options:
Vacuum Truck 1
Uses include potholing and drill slurry removal.
Vacuum Truck 3
Uses include potholing and drill slurry removal
Cleaning Systems and Centrifuges
UEA owns and operates a number of cleaning systems ranging in capability from 200 Gpm up to 700 Gpm. In conjunction with the cleaning system UEA also operates a high volume centrifuge – a low maintenance skid mounted decanter designed specifically for operation in harsh environments and remote locations.
