AFS Bachy Soletanche has developed specific skills in the emerging mining infrastructure market. This industry has special requirements, usually focused on developing foundation solutions around specific project requirements and conducted under very high standards of safe execution.
AFS Bachy Soletanche has shown innovation in this area through such projects as the drilling of a large diameter hole through rock to 55 metres depth at a NSW mine site — all within strict vertical tolerances. This hole was to intersect an old long wall mine to vent the gas.
Similarly, AFS Bachy Soletanche developed drilling techniques under polymer support to construct a new silo at a mineral processing facility site in Queensland. We were able to accommodate the client’s tight deadlines within a small footprint to safely and efficiently carry out the work.
