Drilling method: Auger Drilling

Execution time: 29 weeks 2017
Principal: Strukton Systems

Customer challenge

During this project no less than 99 track drillings had to be carried out at 63 different locations. These locations were along the route from Budel, Weert to Roermond.

What was our solution

The drilling was carried out using the Auger Drilling, mostly using vitrified clay pipes with a diameter of 150 mm. The length of the drilling ranged from 6 to 28 metres, a total of 1398 metres was drilled, and the EGP Tube innovation was used in some of the drillings. With a controlled EGP tube bore it is possible to drill without an exit pit. This is because the drill head is only 15 cm and it can be easily dug up. In addition, several drilling teams worked in parallel to meet the schedule, which was drawn up in close cooperation with the client.

What were the advantages of this

This resulted in a fast work method which met the schedule and saved costs.

Afgelopen week hebben wij een OFT boring van 56 meter (polymeerbeton Ø400/Ø550) gerealiseerd op station Weesp, dit ten behoeve van aan te leggen droge blusleidingen. Inclusief aanvalskasten voor de brandweer aan beide zijden van het station en brandkranen op de perrons. Om de treinreizigers zo min mogelijk tot last te zijn hebben we met beperkte ruimte een veilige werkplek gerealiseerd, tevens hebben we het drukscherm van damwanden in eigen beheer geplaatst. 
OFT drilling north-east Groningen

OFT drilling north-east Groningen

At the moment we are working on a series of OFT drillings to construct the jacket pipes for the transport of industrial water and drinking water in order to bolster the water supply in the northeast of Groningen. By using more surface water as a source of industrial water, the drinking water sources will be preserved for drinking water in the future. The supply of the pipes (Ø914 and Ø1020 steel) is done in-house, which further guarantees the planning of this project.
