Pile top drill rigs (PBA) by MHWirth are supporting the boom in India’s Infrastructure. They provide solid foundations for constructions onshore and offshore, among others for one of India’s flagship projects, the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL).

Five Wirth™ PBAs 818 are currently in operation at the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) project. MTHL will be a 21.8 km long road bridge, connecting the city of Mumbai with Navi Mumbai, its satellite city. MHWirth PBAs are currently drilling around 1,100 piles with diameters of 1,750 and 2,150 mm and depths of up to 50 m.

Efficient technology for challenging infrastructure projects

These days, many infrastructure projects are characterized by increasing constructions, resulting in higher loads on the structures. To be efficient and competitive in such projects, the construction sector requires large foundation diameters. MHWirth PBAs cover the diameter range from 0.6 to 8.0 m and, compared to conventional technologies, they provide the most economical solution for foundations in mixed formations and rock as well as for deep foundations. More than 350 pile top drill rigs by MHWirth have proven to be outstandingly reliable and efficient in numerous projects around the world.

MHWirth will present their portfolio for foundation drilling at Excon 2019 on booth no. D83 within the German pavilion.
