Areas of activity

Flexible horizontal drilling (HDD) Technology that enables the laying of new underground infrastructure in integral drilling with minimal disruption to the environment, and is an ideal method to perform in locations where excavation is impractical, including urban areas, under existing roads, railway tracks, and buildings, including drilling into the sea. The company has extensive experience and expertise in HDD drilling, as well as advanced equipment that allows complex HDD drilling.
Auger Boring Auger boring is one of the common techniques to perform horizontal drilling work that is carried out in a straight line for laying infrastructure on any type of ground under roads and railway tracks or any place where excavation is not possible.
Mini Micro Tunneling This advanced technology allows the company to perform drilling with a maximum accuracy without deviation from the design, to create infrastructure for steel and concrete pipes in all types of soil with a slope of up to ± 0.1%. With the compact machine, this process is done quietly and accurately without causing any environmental disruption. The company has a variety of equipment in this field which allows drilling in all diameters.
Micro-tunneling Using this method is ideal when long lines need to be laid without finish shafts or when the work needs to be performed below groundwater level or under frequently used public infrastructure, such as roads or railways. This technology is very efficient and accurate, ensures horizontal drilling with an exact slope of up to ± 0.05%, and is carried out without disrupting daily life.
Channeling, and trenching works - Solo Kiduhim The Solo Kiduhim subsidiary is the group’s canalization division and provides a variety of excavation and canalization services, including excavation and laying of pipes for drains at the highest accuracy levels (slopes of ± 0.01%) using an advanced laser system. As well as excavation work for laying sewer infrastructure, the company performs rock quarrying and rock crushing with heavy tools up to 320 cm wide.
Line renewal and shattering technology - Oz Salman Technologies, in collaboration with the Oz Control Group Oz Salman Technologies is responsible for using advanced technologies to renew the company’s lines. These innovative technologies make it possible to repair and replace outdated infrastructure of any kind without excavation. The company offers line shattering using Pipe Bursting and Pipe Splitting methods, sleeve and renewal of water pipes, as well as threading large-diameter fiberglass, steel, and polyethylene pipes.

Professional and comprehensive heavy equipment

The company owns an extensive fleet of heavy equipment and highly advanced professional excavation machinery that is considered the backbone in all construction divisions, including about 12 HDD machines in a variety of sizes, 3 Auger boring machines, 3 microtunneling machines, and two mini-micro-tunneling machines, about ten large trenchers, special equipment for all types of shattering and sleeve work, advanced electronic equipment for monitoring and measuring drilling, as well as a support fleet of backhoes, and trucks.
