The Apafor® 700 range of drilling rigs are powerful drilling machines dedicated to large diameter and/or deep drilling, typically in water drilling or geothermal drilling, but can also be configured for foundation drilling or even mining.

This drilling rig is capable of performing various drilling techniques, such as destructive drilling (rotary, down the hole hammer, augers), Reverse Circulation (RC) with mud or air, RAB, Wireline coring, etc. depending on the defined configuration.

The precise technical specifications are established according to the project and/or the customer's wishes. This is why the technical specifications of this range of drills present a wide range of performances and technical elements (which it is possible to consider). The customer can choose the performances he wants (to be validated according to the request) or specify his project (in particular diameters and depth targeted) so that we define the most adapted characteristics. In this way, the drill has the optimum technical specifications to best meet the users' needs.

It can also be configured on a truck, crawler or chassis. The integrated components (e.g. auxiliary motor, injection pump, double rod brake, handling winch, etc.) make the drill very versatile and fully autonomous.

Depending on the project, turnkey solutions with all necessary additional equipment can be offered: drilling equipment, air compressor, service truck and carriers, etc.
