The company uses modern technologies in the production of construction and installation works, including the method of horizontal directional drilling (HDD) for trenchless laying of communications.
The main distinguishing feature of HDD technology is the ability to change the direction of drilling during the process, which allows wells to be drilled along a given trajectory, bypassing underground obstacles and exiting at a given point. It uses a modern location system.
The use of various specialized drilling tools allows for laying in geotechnical conditions typical for the Republic of Belarus, including in winter conditions.
The horizontal length of underground communications is up to 300 m.
The rig is capable of operating in two modes: drilling soft soils (the rig has the characteristics and capabilities of the JT30 installation) and drilling rocky soils (including monolithic and fragmented rocks, crushed stone, pebbles).
