2020 Hudson Hope

Parallel bores of 2” steel gas mains, uphill 360m length with a 47m elevation change and 30+m depth

It was critical to have the deep bore to avoid the fracture zone of the hill

Used wireless EM Steering tool

2019 Terrace duct bundles

Drilled pilot hole with 3650DR Rock system. Then reamed and pulled with JT8020.

2019 Ft St James

2300m of 6” water main

HDPE drilling along hwy in winter conditions

2018 Water main looping

Summer 2015: Augering on Hwy 97

Total Project: 90 m of 36’ and 36 m of 48’ steel pipe

Note: Use of pilot drill and in-house surveying were used to ensure precision and accuracy.

2015 Prince Rupert Ferry Terminal

Total Project: 42’ steel pipe 25 m

Note: Very rocky terrain

2014 Grand Prairie:
