A new fleet of MI12 working in Asia for water wells
Four new MI12 drilling rigs for 12 1/2" water wells up to 400 m are working in South-East Asia, to contribute to the implementation of the water network in rural areas.
With 15 tons pull up, these 6x4 truck mounted rigs can work both by mud, thanks to the Gardner Denver 5 "x 6" mud pump mounted on board, and by air with a DTH hammer. On board are also installed the foam pump and the lubricator, as well as two winches, a main one of 8150 kg direct pull and a service one mounted on the jib-boom with 1120 kg of pull.
The machines are completed by the charger arm under the rotary head: an innovative and effective solution to completely automate the loading and unloading operations of drill pipes. Unlike the complete arm, this system is perfect when it is not possible to have the drill rods on board due to lack of space on the chassis or limitations in the total weight of the equipment.
