    RHV 1500 . England . Tideway Project


    Eurodrill's Vibration Head RHV 1500 is in successful operation at the Tideway Project in London. In this project, injection applications are carried out by using a drilling rig equipped with a Vibration Head. Advantages are evident to the Technical Manager Major Projects, Bachy Soletanche:

    Vibrating head technology appears to offer the potential promise of:

    • increased production rates vs traditional rotary drilling;
    • lower equipment rental and drill string costs compared with equivalent sonic technologies;
    • lower drill string wear compared with traditional rotary methods in hard ground
    • potentially significantly lower equipment capex, maintenance  and  operating costs compared with traditional sonic drilling:
    • comparable performance with sonic drilling Methods
