DCL Ltd., based in Al-Khobar Saudi Arabia, which earlier this year was congratulated for its outstanding achievement on the 2 no 3-km world record undersea 24-in. and 30-in. pipeline crossings on the Berri Causeway project, has increased its HDD rig fleet capacity by investing in a new Prime-Drilling PD 250/90 machine.

TT-UK, responsible for sales and service in the Middle East region for the TT Group of Companies covering its range of trenchless technology equipment, and which was involved with DCL on a jobsite late last year, introduced and recommended a visit to its Prime-Drilling HDD division in Germany following an exchange of technical discussions and indicated interest in December 2008.

During a European business trip earlier this year, Chairman Abdullah Natheer of DCL Ltd., witnessed firsthand the design, quality and manufacturing facility of HDD specialist Prime Drilling, based in Wenden-Gerlingen, West Germany.

Discussions with Prime-Drilling technical director Frank Auringer and his team of highly qualified experienced engineers quickly led to Natheer placing an official order for the supply of a PD-250/90 Trailer Mount unit.

Delivery to the Middle East is expected for August 2009, where future planned HDD crossings covering the Middle East regions are in progress.
