Drilling Methods Supported

  • Kelly Drilling (Without Casing Oscillator): This is the standard drilling method supported by the BG 12H.
  • CFA Drilling: The rig is pre-equipped with hydraulic and electric installations for Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) drilling.
  • FDP Full-Displacement-Piling: It is also pre-equipped for full-displacement piling with hydraulic and electric installations.

Limited Access Projects

  • Restricted Spaces: Ideal for projects in urban areas or confined spaces where traditional rigs may be too large.
  • High-Wall Stability: The compact design allows for precise drilling near existing structures, helping to maintain wall stability.

Groundwater Control

  • Well Points and Dewatering: The rig’s versatility allows it to efficiently create well points for dewatering applications.
  • Low-Impact: Its compact size results in minimal disturbance to the surrounding soil and water table.

Drilled Shaft Services

  • Deep Foundations: Even though it’s compact, the BG 12 is capable of drilling to considerable depths, making it suitable for deep foundation work.
  • Micropiles: Its precision and size make it ideal for drilling micropiles in locations with space limitations.
