GRUNDORAM assisted Horizontal Directional Drilling in Saudi Arabia
Ramming machines are typically used to install steel pipes underneath traffic and waterways. In pipeline construction these machines are also applied to assist or rescue HDD bores. The GRUNDORAM Taurus was recently used by Saudi Arabian company GBP for a so-called "pullback assist". The rammer's impact energy of 18.600 Nm assisted in installing a 48" steel pipe along the Aramco Manifa to Saphaniyah pipeline.
