RCD Rigs & Pile Top – Drill Rigs

HMH provides reliable pile top systems for onshore and offshore applications. Cost efficiency and outstanding performance are some of the key factors that make our products stand out from the competition.

Our pile top drill rigs (PBA) provide the most efficient solution for foundation drilling in mixed ground, boulders and hard rock. Six different machine models cover the diameter range from 0.6 to 8.0 m and can also be used to drill inclined, battered or raker piles. Our PBAs work on the reverse circulation drilling (RCD) method – a highly efficient drilling procedure. HMH is the world market leader in RCD.

We also provide a full range of hydraulic power packs (HPU). All HPUs present leading-edge technology and are optionally available as multipurpose units allowing to also drive auxiliary equipment.
