Exploring the future… today has enabled Canadian Horizontal Drilling Inc. (CHD) to become the leader in the application of Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) technology to environmental sensitive areas such as waterways’, mountains, roads and Municipal infrastructure where - open cutting is just not permitted in today’s "Green Building Projects" requirement.
As horizontal drilling is the "Invisible Footprint" it is an increasing preferred technique for energy or municipal pipe liners to minimize the impact of construction on surrounding areas through no open cutting. The specifics of a drill depend on pipe size and soil conditions, however CHD has the equipment and experience to be able to complete bores well over 1000 meters of 42-inch pipe. In some special instances two rigs can be used on either side of the crossing to reach a length of 2400 meters on what we call an "Intersect" in the HDD industry. Our crossing pipe range would vary from 8 inch to 42 inch. To date Canadian Horizontal Drilling has completed 6000 successful Crossings - many of which were Milestone Projects. Everything a client needs to undertake a successful Crossing from the grass roots issues to the more complex matters is provided by Canadian Horizontal Drilling’s experienced and reliable resources.
