Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD)
Jaihind has executed many river crossing projects for oil & gas pipelines, some of which involve Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD). HDD is an advanced technology useful for construction of all types of pipelines and cable lines under various terrain obstacles such as rivers, lakes, ramparts, roads, canals, swamps, runways, parks, sanctuaries, etc. The obstacle is crossed by drilling under it, from one side to the other, using special machine called drilling rig. Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) has seen enormous growth in the last decade as it offers a clear alternative to open trench and other trenchless construction methods. Jaihind has executed HDD in several of its pipeline projects, also working in conjunction with other HDD contractors with specialized equipment.
Jaihind owns several HDD rigs upto 330 thousand pounds (klbs) and can handle HDD crossings of upto 48" diam. pipe across rivers, bridges, roads, flyovers and other terrains to provide a non-destructive alternative for crossing of pipelines and cables.
