After a several trouble filled weeks of dealing with big cobbles and boulders under the Montreal River, the Marathon HDD team has succeeded in pulling the pipe through for the installation of a 14 inch Water Main. It was one of the toughest directional projects in the history of the directional division, and we are really proud of the team’s hard work and commitment. Bravo!

The “Bassin’ for Kids” fishing tournament is an annual charity event that helps raise money for children in need and is one of the charities we are proud to sponsor. The cause is a great one, but the scenery is pretty good too. For more information about the “Bassin for Kids” charity event go to http://www.bassinforkids.org

Two new pieces of American Auger equipment to add to our roster this week; a new mid-size DD10 Directional Drill

and a new 72 inch boring machine; a brawny 72-1200 NG.

They are so new we don’t have any pictures of them in action, but there soon will be! Look for them soon.

Earth Tunneling | Marathon Drilling Co. Ltd

Just completed a 120 foot long, 10 foot diameter earth tunneling project in Montreal for the new McGill Super Hospital. We broke out into a small exit pit on Decarie Boulevard with barely enough room to pull the TBM out. The concrete pipes we jacked in behind the TBM were pretty hefty too. We modified one of our Tunnel Boring Machines for the job. March 24th, 2011 by David.
