Horizontal Directional Drilling

The landing of submarine cable systems on beaches and the foreshore is often discouraged by permitting authorities due to the potential environmental impact associated with excavating the beach front. As an alternative to trenching and in efforts to expedite permit timelines, International Network Systems offers Horizontal Directional Drilling services to submarine cable system owners. Horizontal Directional Drilling minimizes the environmental impact associated with the submarine cable installation and provides a robust conduit, which protects the cable through the surf zone and foreshore area. Horizontal Directional Drilling can be completed in all types of soil conditions and is a proven method of providing enhanced cable protection while ensuring environmental and ecological responsibility.
