Trenchless technology enables trenchless drilling. With this method, the ground level will not be disturbed or will be disturbed as little as possible. At Brownline, we use our self-engineered Gyro Steering Tool for trenchless drilling. Discover the many benefits of this tool!
What is trenchless technology?
Trenchless technology is a collective name for trenchless drilling techniques that we use at Brownline. A trenchless drilling technique can be applied in the construction of underground infrastructure. Such as:
- water pipelines
- telecommunication cables
- electricity cables
- oil pipelines
- natural gas pipelines
What are the benefits of drilling with trenchless technology?
Traditionally, the above connections are placed in dug trenches. However, this method entails many risks and inconveniences. In this way, the ground surface and the infrastructure are severely disrupted. There are always obstacles lurking around. For example, the presence of waterways, railways or protected landscapes.
With the application of trenchless technology and therefore trenchless drilling, these "obstacles" are a thing of the past. Drilling is controlled by means of the HDD technique (horizontal directional drilling). This technology ensures that pipes can pass under rivers, canals and major roads, without having to dig a trench, thereby preserving the landscape.
The major advantages of trenchless drilling technology over traditional methods are:
- The stagnation of road and rail traffic is prevented.
- The existing infrastructure is not affected.
- Less or no polluted excavated soil.
- More time savings and lower costs.
Brownline's Drillguide Gyro Steering Tool
There are many ways of trenchless drilling. Brownline's Drillguide Gyro Steering Tool is widely regarded as the best horizontal and vertical drillguide on the market. Why? Simply because our steering technology has exceptional precision! A technique that we apply worldwide for all conceivable organisations in the field of gas, oil, telecom and electricity. See the video below for an example of trenchless drilling with our Gyro Steering Tool.
At Browline, we perform drills across the world with both national and international drilling contractors. Through our track record, we have developed tools that meet all the most stringent accuracy requirements for drilling. These tools are used under all conditions, from the hard granite fjords of the cold North to the deserts of Dubai. Our steering service is the solution for your drilling project!
