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.
A cost effective, simplistic method of installing basic utility crossings where on grade accuracy is not essential.
Thrust boring is one of the oldest forms of trenchless technology. Whilst the methodology has its limitations, it remains one of the most cost-effective forms of trenchless technology. Both distance and diameter requirements, combined with ground conditions, dictate installation capability.
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.
