1995

In 1995, Underground Envirotech Australia – now known simply as UEA – was established in Goulburn to provide trenchless installations for utility companies in the southern region of NSW and the ACT.  ActewAGL and Telstra were among the first clients to utilise the technology for electrical upgrades, sewer renovations and new communications networks.

Significant growth in the early years, primarily on the back of the telecommunications boom, ensured that UEA became a go to HDD contractor for complex projects. UEA capitalised on its strength within the sector and increased its market share in the Greater Sydney area – in particular the electricity market. By the year 2000 offices were open in Sydney and Canberra servicing a large part of NSW and the ACT.

Once established in Sydney, UEA’s commitment to high quality work and innovative approaches opened up opportunities to become a panel contractor in the electrical market with Endeavour Energy as well as providing services to other major civil contractors. Further diversification into other infrastructure sectors, such as water, waste water and sewer quickly followed, which has enabled UEA remain as a market leader in the horizontal directional drilling market.

2005-2007

UEA finally moved into the maxi rig market in 2008 with the purchase of a 300,000 pound HDD rig. Further purchases of another 300,000 pound and 660,000 pound machine further cemented UEA’s position in this market. UEA is now recognised as an industry leader with the ability to successfully deliver significant projects around Australia.
