REM Directional Inc. is a privately owned specialty pipeline installation contractor based in Boligee, Alabama. Although we are experienced in using a number of techniques, most commonly we perform Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) and road bores. In addition, we do all types of sheet and pipe pile installations and are one of only 3 US based contractors that has the Direct Pipe pipe installation technology.
We serve the needs of both private and commercial sectors of the pipeline construction industry, and have done so for over 19 years. We are considered an innovative industry leader, have performed some of the most complex installations in the country and have often been called in on others’ jobs to consult, fix or complete difficult installations. .
In August 2010 we successfully introduced the concept of using a new pipe thrusting technology by Herrenknecht Tunneling Systems of Germany by completing the very first Direct Pipe installation in the United States. Since that time, we have successfully completed 2 additional bores for the same client and another 6 for various other clients. Three Direct Pipe installations have been performed so far in 2016.
By using this method, we are often able to save our clients time and money over more traditional techniques. We have been involved in a number of projects that were redesigned to use the Direct Pipe technique after the project had begun and after the owner had a chance to see the advantages first hand.
