Directional Drilling

MME’s primary area of expertise lies within utility installation through horizontal directional drilling (HDD) and other forms of trenchless technology. HDD provides a trenchless solution for the installation of pipelines, conduits and cables primarily for water, power, gas and communication services. The technology provides advantages over conventional excavation methods by reducing site footprint,  with minimal disruption to traffic, low costs, short completion times, and low risk to personal safety and the environment.

We maintain two directional drilling crews that operate simultaneously and consist of:

  • Directional Drills
  • Vacuum Excavation Trucks
  • Excavators
  • Drill Truck with Mud Mixing Unit
  • Drilling Teams.

We pride ourselves on our ability to instantly mobilise to any site in Western Australia and provide a quality HDD service. We have a low asset strike rate and a confidence to deliver high risk projects including under rivers and rail lines, over all terrain, and in heavily congested areas.

Flexi Drilling

We own Western Australia’s only flexi-drilling machinery. This enables us to access high-risk, difficult projects and confined areas such as narrow streets and building sites in the CBD.

Our flexi drills are operated from diggers and excavators and have a 2.5m footprint, with a pullback pressure of 10,000 pounds. They can pull a range of pipes, from 20mm – 350mm and are able to drill out to 100m if required.  These machines are suited to smaller projects, such as road crossings, and have enabled MME to complete projects other contractors in our field could not access.

Our Flexi-Drilling crew consists of:

  • Flexi Drill
  • Mini Excavator
  • Vacuum Excavation Truck
  • Drill Truck with Mud Mixing Unit
  • Drilling Team.

Some of our key Flexi-Drilling projects have included:

  • Various projects for the Water Corporation in the Perth CBD
  • Perth Entertainment Centre
  • Great Eastern Highway Bypass Upgrade.


MME own and operate a 4×4 mounted down the hole drill able to carry out earthing projects in any location. Earthing enables grounded protection of electronic infrastructure such as power poles, transformers and substation equipment. We can drill holes and install earth rods in sand, clay, rock and granite.
