JSC Seismotekhnika together with Drillmec began to produce drilling rigs with a hook load of 225 tons.

OJSC Seismotekhnika has expanded the range of heavy mobile drilling units. The company became one of the first in Eurasian Economic Union to produce drilling rigs with a hook load of 225 tons.

One of the units has already been transferred to Belorusneft namely, to the Department for Enhanced Oil Recovery and Well Workover. In total, the workover workers are expecting to get two ARS-225 units at this stage.

The technical capabilities of the new unit make it possible to use it on gas wells in the Novy Urengoy area. Among the main features of the ARS-225 are a high rig floor, a reinforced mast with a height of 42 meters. The drilling rig is equipped with a Drillmec HTD-250CR-LT top drive.

The company is finalizing the manufacturing process of a batch of ARS-225 units under an agreement with a customer. For the export version, the Gomel rig builders took into account the special requirements of the Russian customer: they switched the rig from diesel to electric power, and lowered the mast. In total, it is planned to supply the Russians with five heavy duty mobile drilling rigs.
