Direct Pipe

The direct pipe method is the trenchless installation method that results from the combination of microtunneling and HDD to give rise to a method that is versatile, quick, efficient and cost effective.


It’s a one-pass method that does not require back reaming as in HDD, and does not require a shaft for pipe thrusting as in microtunneling. The direct pipe method involves simultaneous excavation of the borehole and installation of the pipeline – all in one step – and is suitable for any ground/soil condition.
