Drilling equipment supplier Skelair has signed a deal to become the UK and Irish distributor for water-powered drilling and casing equipment manufacturer Wassara.
Skelair says the addition of Wassara equipment to its services increases solutions available for complex applications such as on contaminated and brownfield sites, where pneumatic drilling is not a viable option. The company adds that it will be better placed to meet the needs of specialist geotechnical contractors, which will be underpinned by the supply of water pumps - available both on a purchase and hire basis.
“Our focus has always been on providing the best range of systems backed up by in-house technical support and a comprehensive maintenance package,” said Skelair director of sales Chris Neighbour.
“Joining the global Wassara distribution network will enable us to extend our experience and service offering to the more specialist requirements of water-powered drilling,” he adds.
