SDC taps into new markets
July 2, 2013, Canada – Sonic Drill Corporation (SDC) announced that it is partnering with two companies currently serving the Australian and New Zealand markets to bring its sonic drilling technology to customers down under.
Drilltechniques, a Comacchio dealer based in Queensland, Australia, contracted SDC to convert a Comacchio MC900P into a sonic drill.
Working closely with Drilltechniques and Comacchio engineering, the MC900P was fitted with a full-capacity Sonicor 50K drill head, high speed coring head and upgraded hydraulic system/controls.
The rig went to work at the end of February for a geotechnical project in Christchurch, New Zealand.
An SDC trainer and technician were on site to commission the rig and provide training in correct sonic drilling techniques.
"This project is an example of what three great companies can achieve by working together," says Kevin Reimer, sales and operations manager at SDC. "High quality Comacchio rig, advanced SDC sonic technology and Drilltechniques world-class service and support."
