About The Project

Dubbed the WS6000, the track-mounted drill rig capable of drilling 7-inch nominal diameter holes, is the first hybrid drill rig that incorporates both high pressure water down-the-hole (DTH) and sonic drilling technologies.

“It’s an exciting breakthrough,” says MEDATech Engineering President Robert Rennie. “The rig is equipped with one top-drive unit capable of both sonic and high pressure water drilling. Switching between the two is a seamless process.”

The rig is capable of delivering very granular geotechnical data in real time anywhere on the globe. An additional feature is a fully autonomous rod-handling system that can move both casing and rods separately or as one in and out of the mast. “This provides a much greater degree of safety,” notes Manning, “than we see anywhere in the industry today.”
