Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) - for Laying New Pipes
Using a horizontal directional drilling rig, an underground duct is drilled, into which one or more conduits are drawn.
A pit is usually excavated both at the beginning and at the end of the required route.
The first step is to create a so-called pilot hole pointing towards the destination pit using a controllable boring head.
Then, in further steps the final pipe duct is widened with a so-called back reamer and the pipe is introduced by an insertion device. As a result, the bored duct is widened to the required diameter.
