Horizontal Drainage

Horizontal Drainage has many useful applications, ranging from civil construction and geotechnical improvements to recreational facilities, agriculture and environmental projects.

Horizontal Drainage lowers the water table, which is beneficial for agricultural and recreational land users. Horizontal Drainage can also be used in combination with prefabricated vertical drains to discharge the water faster to surrounding trenches. Furthermore, the installation of Horizontal Drainage can stabilize slopes of flood defence walls.

Our chainsaw-type trenching machines install perforated drain pipes down to 8 metres depth and backfill the trench in one continuous operation. Our equipment has GPS positioning systems for accurate installation.

We can use the same equipment to dig trenches for power cables and small diameter pipelines.
