  • More than 65 drilling rigs
  • Rigs capable of 544 tonnes of drilling thrust and pulling power
  • Equipment capable of boring in virtually any ground condition
  • Custom-fabricated large specialized drilling equipment, available for projects anywhere in the world

Horizontal directional drilling is especially efficient for river crossings. With HDD, piping is drilled well-below the river bed, making all buried pipe impervious to shoreline erosion, ice movement, dredging, anchor and watercraft activity.
