Two Comacchio GEO305HT drill rigs and a Comacchio GEO205HT have recently been added by Socotec to its fleet of plant for ground investigation work

The UK provider of testing, inspection and compliance services has invested in one Comacchio GEO205HT and two Comacchio GEO305HT drills, the latter of which features a height-adjustable rod clamp assembly - a world-first for a rig of this type. All three rigs are known to produce fewer emissions, while also including the best in safety-critical systems.

By investing in these state-of-the-art drilling rigs, Socotec's Ground Investigation team is able to invoke a high level of confidence from its clients when mobilising a large site investigation project with in-house crews.

Clare Chapman, operations director, Ground Investigation, Socotec, said: "By adding three new Comacchio rotary drilling rigs to our fleet, Socotec's Ground Investigation team remains committed to maintaining a high quality, flexible and bespoke service offering that meets the growing demand for ground investigation and geotechnical projects.

"Having continuously improved the specification of our rigs in line with market demand and industry developments, Socotec's investment in these new Comacchio drilling rigs further cements our position at the forefront of the site investigation industry, as well as augmenting our team's extensive offering, from our recent investment in the Transducer Packer Slave Reeler to devising a collaborative system of work that allows our employees to operate safely during the COVID-19 pandemic."
