Torrumbarry Weir at the Murray River

Posted on 21 November 2018

Goulburn Murray Water tasked Super City with drilling an intersect access hole with an existing drain line inside weir wall at Torrumbarry Weir on the Murray River.

With a depth of 3.6m and a diameter of 102mm they needed powerful and strong equipment. Using the ADS4 power pack and BC-2 Drill Motor they were able to use a range of core bits to achieve their mission; these included a starter bit to ensure accuracy at the start of drilling followed by 1m bit, 2m bit, 2 x 1.2m extension bar. The task was drilled in an hour, however due to the aggregate size the extraction time was
considerablely longer at 2 hours.
