Drilling Rigs

Drilling Rigs

When you need drilling services at your site, you need a trusted team with the right equipment and knowledge. At South Western Drilling, we have the drilling rigs, and the skills, to complete a range of boring and coring operations in a safe and controlled manner. From soil sampling to sediment liquefaction, our drilling processes can be employed as part of site preparations, ground investigations, or ongoing monitoring.

Types of drilling services:

We work closely with your team to establish the best drilling techniques for your needs, and to provide the equipment best suited to your site. For environmental sampling and monitoring, sonic drilling and auger drilling are popular methods which offer safe results with limited risk of contaminant leakage. Contemporary vibracoring rigs are preferred for sampling at various depths, especially when assessing a site for construction viability.

All drilling rigs are operated to required safety standards by our qualified and highly experienced team. We can provide drilling services as a one-off service, or on a regular basis, depending on your needs. Drilling rigs are great for monitoring and regular testing, especially when working with groundwater or when monitoring wells. They are also necessary when working on a site where contaminated soil is likely – such as a former chemical or industrial plant, or on agricultural land.

For more information about any aspect of our drilling rigs, including hire and operation, contact South Western Drilling and speak to a member of the team today.
