White Papers/Special Reports
It’s no mystery that our infrastructure is aging and in need of some much-needed TLC. Many of these underground conveyance systems were installed before our time. The systems are suffering from years of neglect and a reactive attitude toward system maintenance.
It is in this vein that we present this special report focused on trenchless rehab technologies. Our goal is to offer the reader some insight into the technologies available to rehabilitate critical underground infrastructure, hear from system owners about their successes and challenges with trenchless relining and better understand where the market stands and where it is headed.
Throughout this digital issue, we explore the current market trends in the electric utility market, the evolution of drill bits and HDD technology to aid in installation infrastructure, as well as the importance of utility locating and how vacuum excavators can improve safety during HDD operations in more densely populated areas where undergrounding work is taking place.
This digital issue explores the evolution of trenchless installation methods for underground infrastructure and explains when trenchless techniques are the most optimal and how these methods improve safety, help save on costs and reduce environmental and social disruption. Plus, much more!
A valuable resource for directional drilling contractors, engineers and project owners. The HDD Guide is filled with practical information, including HDD equipment specs, 6 Product Directories, Bidding Tips, Expert advice regarding drill pipe, solids control, and much more.
Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) is one of the most widely used utility installation methods throughout the world. However, there are still challenges on the journey.
This free whitepaper takes a look back at needs that inspired the HDD equipment, tooling and technology the industry depends on today and explores challenges contractors are likely to encounter in the future. Topics include:
- Innovations for navigating crowded underground right of ways
- Tools for planning and delivering as-built bore documentation
- Tooling, machine technology and drilling fluid additives developed for boring in challenging soil conditions
- The latest advances in machinery for managing drilling fluids on the job
- How the industry is tackling the ongoing labor shortage using technology to train operators
- New equipment and technology being developed to address new challenges on the horizon
A comprehensive guide designed to help owners, engineers and contractors attain a better understanding of pipe relining methods, applications and brands.
