Horizontal directional drilling
Alzira, Valencia, España
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.
Benefits and advantages of our solution:
Ductile iron pipe has also been used successfully in industrial installations since the mid-1970s. Our pipe is suitable for capturing and conveying the water required in transformation processes:
- Combine Cycle Project
- Steam production and cogenerations plants
- Food industry
- Wastewater reuse for irrigation
- Solar energy.
