Shaft boring systems

The IHC Vertical Mole was designed and built in close cooperation with one of our customers. The system can drill 2,000mm diameter piles down to 65m in depth, in an area with just over 3m headspace.
The system consists of a cutting head with extendable arms, a vertical jacking station and a low-height portal control crane. The system is capable of drilling and installing steel pipe segments of 1,850mm each. The entire operation is monitored and remotely controlled from a cabin. 
IHC’s shaft boring systems can be customised for larger diameters and varying ground conditions.
