Installation of 2 No. 25mm MDPE Water Pipes in Leeds

Utilising our Easydrill mini HDD rig and DCI tracking system we recently completed a 55m long installation of 2 x 25mm MDPE blue water pipe. The Easydrill was ideal for this project due to the limited working space with the road kept open throughout the day.

This trenchless method is ideal for the installation of cables and ducts, water mains, pumped sewer lines, gas lines and oil lines under waterways, roads, railways, existing structures, congested areas, environmentally sensitive areas and any area where other methods are more costly or not feasible.

Mini HDD (or Mini horizontal directional drilling) is a guided trenchless method in which a pilot borehole is drilled along a pre-determined bore path, subsequent hole enlargement follows the path set by the pilot bore, from a pit or from the surface with minimum disturbance.

  • Short, medium and long lengths of pipe can be installed without intermediate pits.
  • Pipes are installed straight or curved to steer clear of obstacles and existing services.
  • No disruption to road, river or rail traffic and no scarring of the landscape.
  • Unaffected by surface obstacles such as buildings, trees, roads, and rivers etc.
  • Environmentally-friendly process.
