HORIZONTAL DIRECTIONAL DRILLING
UEA’s HDD skillsets have been developed across several significant & complex projects over the last 20 years.
Both lessons learned and experiences gained enable UEA to provide its client base with simple solutions to what are sometimes deemed difficult or even impossible projects.
Where accuracy and grade are critical, tunnelling is the solution. UEA currently offers two tunnelling techniques – guided boring and thrust boring.
- Guided Boring (Pilot Tube Microtunnelling) – The Guided Boring System can either be used on its own or in conjunction with an auger boring system.
- Thrust Boring (Auger Boring) – Thrust boring one of the oldest forms of trenchless technology.
Rehabilitation or renewal? This is always the question asked when considering pipeline renovations. If renewal is the choice, and if the existing infrastructure is suitable, then pipe bursting should be considered.
Pipe bursting can be delivered using either pneumatic or hydraulic systems. Size for size and upsizing options are possible – all subject to diameter, depth of cover and ground conditions.
UEA offers civil construction capabilities across the major utility areas, primarily as a part of a trenchless installation scope.
Specialising in all areas of utility construction, our team takes a hands-on approach to delivering work to ensure we meet all of our clients’ programme and budgetary requirements.
