Horizontal Directional Drilling or HDD, is a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipe, conduit, or cable in prescribed bore path by using a surface-launched drilling rig, with minimal impact on the surrounding area.
We provide reliable underground installations of pipes and conduits for a wide variety of services, utilities and cables.
Properly performed, this method of Trenchless Technology has zero settlement to the ground surface, since there is no excavation... instead, displacement is used rather than excavation.
Our installations are fast, clean and quiet with most by-passing people not even realizing we are working.
HDD is the latest advanced technology in non disruptive road crossings. Ideal for water, Gas, electric & fibre optic cables and telephone cables of single or multiple ducts. Drilling HDPE pipes from 32mm diameter to 1000mm diameter, and lengths from 8m to 700m, Under Roads, Railway tracks, Pavements, Lakes and rivers, Airport run ways, and solid structures.
ZUCS uses the Paratrack steering system for our drilling projects having the capability of drilling horizontal bores in kilometers with high precision.
