January 14th, 2019: MEDATECH is excited to announce that they have agreed to terms for the supply of an innovative drilling system. The system will be used for rehabilitation of aging dam infrastructure in the southern United States.
The customer have been conducting extensive on-site assessment of their existing drilling systems for dam rehabilitation. With recent changes on the OEM landscape, they found that it would be difficult to upgrade the performance of their existing machines to suit the current needs of their operations. Furthermore, simply upgrading their machines wouldn’t allow for the adaptation of some significant advances in technology which could prove to be a superior production solution. As a result, a new purpose built dam rehabilitation drill was proposed. In response to the customers request for quotation, MEDATECH will be supplying a new Borterra W6000 drill to their Logan Martin Dam project. The MEDATECH solution incorporates both water hammer and sonic drilling technology enabling a vastly improved system for the rehabilitation of aging dam infrastructure.
Additional details of the Borterra W6000 will be posted on our project page as they become available.
“This project is combining our groups 100+ years of drilling technology experience into a single platform. We believe that the flexibility and the accuracy of the Borterra W6000 is unmatched in industry and will be a game changer for customers looking for a faster, more environmentally friendly solution.” – Steven Archer
