Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is a versatile trenchless construction method for locations where surface excavations and conventional trenching are not desirable. With crews and equipment capable of installing pipelines and conduit bundles up to 60 inches in diameter and to length beyond 4,000 metres, when partnering with us, you get the team with the most sophisticated guidance systems to drill parabolic boreholes on precisely engineered alignments. We bring you a fleet of custom-modified large rigs with up to 1.2 million pounds of drilling thrust/pulling power that operate in all climates, conditions and locations, including under waterways, railways, roadways and runways.
Michels completes HDD from:
Land to land
Land to water
Water to water
Michels pioneered the pilot hole intersect method, which extends the possibility of HDD by using two rigs to bore the alignment from each side and meet at a predetermined location.
