Deltabase 510

The first Italian Deltabase 510 multipurpose rig imported into the UK recently completed its first job taking structural cores of the Hazlehurst Canal Aqueduct on the Leek Canal in Staffordshire.

Contractor Norwest Holst Soil Engineering selected the rig because its compact size, power and versatility made light work of difficult access and demanding drilling requirements.The self propelled rig towed its own power pack 400m up the canal bank to reach the aqueduct, while 10m flexible couplings meant on site working areas could be kept relatively clear.

Cores from the foundations of the 160 year old aqueduct form part of an investigation into recent water loss from the structure.

The rig was imported into the UK through Boart Longyear.
