Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is a highly versatile technique that enables the safe installation of services under roads, rail and waterways without impacting production time. HDD’s compact delivery minimises impact on the surrounding environment, making it well suited to installations in environmentally sensitive or congested areas. As the name suggests, the use of this method provides directional capabilities. It also has deeper and/or longer installation capacity than more conventional drilling systems. HDD’s versatility and shorter project delivery times make it a viable and cost effective solution for many infrastructure projects. Diverse Group Australia are specialists in delivering technically challenging HDD.

Our fleet of horizontal drill rigs install bores suitable for applications ranging from 50mm conduit through to 900mm steel pipe in adverse ground conditions such as sand, clay and rock. Diverse Group Australia has successfully executed Horizontal Directional Drilling projects to install infrastructure including:

  • Telecommunications and power cable conduits
  • Water lines
  • Sewer to grade lines
  • Gas lines
  • Oil lines
  • Fibre optic
