The Casing Double Pin Drill
In our previous blog we told you about our band saw and how it performed during workshop trials. This time we take a look at the DDU1636 double drill unit which was also designed by the Mirage team for offshore decommissioning projects.
In 2012 the Mirage DDU was runner-up product at the World Oil Awards on the ‘Health, Safety, and Environment / Sustainable Development Offshore Award’ category.
The machine is mostly used for drilling lifting holes into casings, which can then be severed using a portable band saw and lifted out of position. The robust construction and carbide tipped cutters makes it an ideal tool for cutting through different materials as used in cemented casing strings.
