Welcome to the
Drilling Contractors Association (DCA)!

The Drilling Contractors Association (DCA) is a technical association of the horizontal directional drilling industry in Europe.. The horizontal directional drilling method with the international designation Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) has meanwhile established itself worldwide as a technical and economic alternative for the underlaying of obstacles in the field of pipeline laying.

Pipeline infrastructure structures are the lifelines of modern society and it is no longer possible to imagine the construction of this infrastructure without trenchless construction methods, in particular horizontal directional drilling.

For more than 25 years, the DCA has successfully represented the interests of HDD technology in the areas of technical development, quality assurance, training and further education, and research and development vis-à-vis clients, authorities and other institutions.

The association offers its members numerous important services, training opportunities and information. In addition, the DCA offers an international forum that facilitates a constant exchange of experience between HDD contractors, suppliers, planners, customers and authorities.
