FAQ

What Is HDD?

Horizontal Directional Drilling is a method that makes drilling underneath industry complexes possible. The spectrum of an application includes all pipe construction of gas, irrigation pipelines and drinking water supply, the installation of pressure lines for sewers as well as cable protection pipes for television or telephone cables, traffic routing systems, emergency call boxes or low, medium, high voltage and optical fiber cables.

 

What does it do to the environment?

The HDD method is extremely protective towards the environment. It causes no ecological damage at all. Minimal damage to the area is only caused in the vicinity of the unit. Several reasons also speak for the application of the directional technique in central town areas. These mainly concern the construction costs, construction periods, permission procedures, soil movement, surface restoration and the traffic, compared to open trenching methods.

 

What precautions does S&S take to ensure the safety of the public?

A well planned HDD operation includes a preliminary survey of the bore path area, concerning other existing external lines (utilities) and the soil condition.
