Horizontal directional drilling (HDD). Is it hectic and crowded above and below the ground? Then horizontal directional drilling is the ideal solution. With this ‘house speciality’, Visser & Smit Hanab can bypass obstacles by computer when laying cables and pipes.
Visser & Smit Hanab carries out horizontal directional drilling all over the world. Our firm was even there at the birth of this development, which avoids costly open excavations. HDD works with a computer-controlled drilling installation that is connected to the casing tube at ground level and pulls the cable, casing pipe or pipeline through the ground. With a complete range of rigs, our ‘machine park’ is equipped for all HDD drilling.
River crossings, crossings of infrastructure, dune crossings, landfalls and outfalls: HDD is perfect for complex projects and technological solutions. Visser & Smit Hanab owes its reputation and demonstrable track record to a team of designers, geologists, engineers, drilling experts and equipment specialists. With these in-house experts and refined techniques, HDD is becoming ever more attractive technically and financially.
