Efficient drilling tools for New Forth Road Crossing

Once again NUB Engineering is playing an important role in the improvement of British infrastructure.
MOTHERWELL, Scotland - Jan. 29, 2014 - PRLog -- The New Forth Road Crossing is now under construction to eventually add to and finally replace the existing Forth Road Bridge. This project in Queensferry is vital to safeguard connections in Scotlands transport network.

This project is on track for completion in 2016 and having already supplied drilling tools to P J Edwards for road improvements in the area NUB has more recently supplied both drilling tools and segmental casings to Cementation for the construction of the main foundation piles supporting the main approach on the North side.

The 1650mm diameter casings are being installed to depths of 30m to support the unstable ground while the pile bores are drilled on using 1500mm tools to reach suitable founding material where they are cored into the bearing rock.

This important project adds to the list of prestigious works where NUB Enginnering's tools have been chosen for their quality and design to maximise efficiency in foundation drilling.

The union between STDS-JANTZ (Germany) and N.U.B. (Scotland) Engineering has combined the skill and expertise gained by both companies over the last 30 years.

Working together to meet the needs of drilling contractors around the world the two companies have combined the most modern technology with a well-trusted, skilful workforce in order to design and manufacture all types of drilling tools.
