Ground engineering and rock drilling equipment supplier Skelair has added a Klemm PP-95-DS tracked power pack to its rental fleet. The machine is the first to be delivered to the UK market.
Skelair invested in the new power pack to work with the Klemm 702-2 drilling rigs that it already offers through its hire fleet.
The company says the ability to drive the pack under its own power makes it a highly portable power solution and will significantly increase the efficiency of its 702-2 drilling rigs by removing the need to couple and then decouple the power pack with each change of drill position.
“Demand for lightweight, portable, yet powerful drill rigs is on the rise, so we felt it important to make the same available when it comes to the accompanying power pack,” said Skelair International managing director John Mayo.
Mayo added that demand for the new power pack is expected to be driven by piling projects where there is limited space on site or maximising the efficiency of drilling operations is a priority.
