“Passing through a river followed by a mountain” is undoubtedly the most appropriate description for the construction experience of XZ6600 horizontal directional drilling machine of XCMG in Gujarat, India
Successful passing through the Ganges River of India by the horizontal directional drilling machine XZ6600 with the largest tonnage in 2017 shocked the entire non-excavation industry. Now the drilling machine makes another achievement by working together with XZ3000 horizontal directional drilling machine of XCMG to pass through a complex mountain bidirectionally in an oil pipeline laying project of India’s HP Oil Company and successfully lay a pipeline of 4240 long and 400mm in diameter. The geological condition of the mountain is complex with enormous construction risk, the consequence of which will be unpredictable without equipment of stable performance and complete service guarantee. Several construction companies had previously surveyed the construction site and chose to give up, while the client who purchased XZ6600 were confident about XCMG’s drilling machine and took the project determinedly.
