Rotary

Topdrill’s fleet of in-house Fraste Multi-purpose rotary drilling rigs are able to undertake a variety of drilling techniques which include:

  • Windowless sampling
  • Conventional coring
  • Wireline coring
  • Overburden casing systems
  • Solid & hollow stem augering
  • Open hole drilling methods

Our rotary drillers come from a broad and diverse background having worked all over the UK and beyond with the ability to provide high quality samples whilst adhering to the highest of HS & E standards.
All our Lead Drillers hold an NVQ Level 2 in Land Drilling along with a blue skilled worker CSCS card.  As a minimum all members of the crew will hold a CSCS labourers card, PTS & HSG47, Asbestos Awareness and Manual Handling.
Upon request we can provide crews with NRSWA and SPA certification.

Our Fraste PL-G rigs are light and mobile enough to be lifted by Road Rail Vehicles for works being undertaken trackside or in difficult to access locations. Each rig is supplied complete with all required lifting accessories and stillages for the movement of tooling and equipment.
Mobilisation is carried out using our fleet of 7.5t LGVs which can be available to remain on site for the duration of the project.
In addition to our drilling rigs, Topdrill can provide a selection of plant and equipment to meet your project needs.
