Ord River Geotechnical

Key Elements

Service: Geotechnical Drilling
Year: 2012
Client: Coffey


Engaged by Coffey Geotechnics to complete a geotechnical investigation for a proposed bridge site over the Ord River near Kununurra Hagstrom configured a Hydropower Truck rig (DR016) with a Symmetrix system.

Symmetrix can drill through almost any ground condition. Whether there’s sand or boulders, Symmetrix drills on until the desired depth is reached. Once at depth the pilot bit is retrieved for geotechnical testing, well or instrument installation.

Whilst difficult ground conditions where encountered plus the extreme temperatures and humidity, Hagstroms’ equipment and well trained personnel ensured a safe and successful project.
