Dando Drilling – UK to Algeria

Road Haulage

With feasibility, planning and manufacturing just some of the factors that need to be considered in project logistics, it’s no surprise that a lot of projects end up being “slow burners”.  That’s certainly the case for one of our recent projects, which was three and a half years in the making. 

Back in the autumn of 2015, we started discussing a drilling rig project from the UK to Algeria for Dando Drilling, one of Hemisphere’s long-standing customers. The package was to consist of six vehicles – two Watertec 12.8 truck mounted drilling rigs, two converted Iveco Daily vans and two converted Iveco Trakkers – alongside a 40’ shipping container loaded with drill rods and various other tools and machinery.

"This was a challenging project from start to finish, but having the trust of the client throughout made it a lot easier than it otherwise could have been. We have established a strong relationship with Dando and look forward to our next project with them, whenever that may be."
