Horizontal directional drilling


Valencia, Spain.


456 m

A project with a worldwide impact

Alzira, a small town near Valencia, was the beneficiary of a unique horizontal directional drilling (HDD) project using DN 900 PHD-type ductile iron pipe with a 25 bar design pressure.

Horizontal directional drilling: 456 m of buried pipeline with large-diameter pipe

Part of the route of the new pipeline, with a nominal diameter of 900mm for the supply of drinking water to the Ribera region, involved crossing the River Júcar, the Valencia – Alicante railway line and an industrial building.
