Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) Ditch Witch AT60 ‘Rock’ Directional Drilling System

Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) is an ideal solution for installing utilities under structures such as roads, rivers, canals, railway lines and protected areas.

HDD is the ideal solution for duct installation for all utilities and during the construction of infrastructure such as data centers, water/wastewater projects, windfarms and solar farms. It is a method with only one start point and one exit point, so surfaces along the route remain untouched.
