Bauer Group’s Prakla Bohrtechnik has sold six of its new RB-T 90 deep-drilling rigs to China.

The rigs are designed to sink emergency rescue shafts to reach trapped miners quickly and safely.

RB-T 90 drilling rigs offer a maximum hook load capacity of 90 tonnes. The maximum small-diameter drilling depth is 3,000 metres. With 700 millimetres diameter, bores can be sunk down to a depth of 1,500m.

The rigs are built on a truck trailer and can be towed quickly to any location. The rigs are being built in the Bauer Maschinen plant at the corporate headquarters in Schrobenhausen, Bavaria, Germany.
