With the purchase of its new anchor drilling rig, Tecimasa S.L.U., a Spanish Viuda de Sainz Group company and long-standing customer of KLEMM Bohrtechnik GmbH, relied once more, on state-of-the-art technology from KLEMM. In August a KR 806-4GM was commissioned in cooperation with KLEMM's partner KMMB Demolición y Perforación (Madrid), and the very first assignment took place at a construction site in the outskirts of the Basque industrial and port city of Bilbao.
For the construction of a new building with an underground car park, anchor holes with a casing diameter of 152 mm and a drilling depth of 9 - 12 m were drilled in an ambient temperature of over 40 °C. The drilling rig, equipped with a manipulator and a revolving magazine (MAG 6.1) drilled the rods into the ground with a down-the-hole hammer.
Since its launch at the CONEXPO in Las Vegas earlier this year, multiple KR 806-4GM drilling rigs have excelled in various construction projects around the USA. This is the first assignment for the KR 806-4GM in the European Market.
