Advantages of Directional Drilling

No trenches
No traffic disruptions
No landscape violation
No reinstatement costs
No obstacles
Big saving on manpower, time and costs
Social cost savings

Directional Drilling, a process of installing underground services without trenching is an efficient and professional method widely used in many developed and developing countries.

Proven to be faster, more cost effective and definitely less disruptive to surface activities, directional drilling is a welcome technology whether installing utilities in the city, rural areas, parks or major infrastructure.

Anywhere and everywhere, directional drilling systems give people and the environment the convenience and protection of an otherwise polluted and messy worksite.

  • Clean trenchless solution for underground installations without disturbing the above surface
  • Savings in excavations and shoring costs
  • Savings in reinstatement costs and eliminating the effort to blend with surroundings
  • Removes possibility of trenching-related accidents
  • Less delays due to unfavourable weather conditions – no more pumping water out of trenches and pits
  • No more need to apply for road opening permits for public road works
  • Faster and neater, usually requiring less than half the time needed by conventional trenching method
  • Ideal for sites sensitive to surface disruptions like golf courses, airport runways, busy traffic junctions, difficult site conditions, etc
  • Cost effective. Prices do not vary much from conventional trenching methods. In fact, in some situations, our price may even be lower.
  • Ideal for kerb to house service installations of power, gas, communications, sewer and water. It is just as suited to large-scale industrial and commercial applications for underground services
