Infrastructure

Drillcon Infrastructure operations.

With our knowledge and long experience of demanding projects with high complexity, we work very closely with our customers. By listening to the customer’s ideas, conditions and final goals, we can recommend carefully thought out solutions. We are often a cost-effective alternative in projects where conventional drilling is not suitable due to sensitive structures that must not be subjected to stress or vibration.

Typical projects are, for example, drilling for reinforcing concrete structures such as dams, and drilling for basic reinforcement of buildings and other structures in sensitive areas, where core drilling is the only suitable method. We do many of these works on culturally marked buildings.

Power station dams

In power station dams and other concrete constructions, diamond core drilling has many advantages. The method is completely vibration free, that gives a minimal impact on the construction surrounding environment.

Concrete core from the drilling can be analyzed regarding crack formation. The transformation between construction and solid rock is clearly visible.

  • Drilling for cable attachment
  • Drilling for injection
  • Drilling for core sample of concrete and rock

 

Injection drilling

The advantage of injection drilling using diamond core drilling, is that the holes are left clean. This makes it easier to thoroughly inject even small cracks.

The core is removed from the injection holes, leaving the cracks in the construction visible. The method is also vibration free, which benefits sensitive buildings in the surrounding area.
