Infrastructure Constructions have bought the D100x120 Series II from Vermeer Australia . Infrastructure Constructions are involved in trenchless and horizontal directional drilling (HDD) for laying power or communications cables and water or gas pipelines.
The D100x120 Series II has begun drilling on a pipeline project for the regional council in Gladstone, Central Queensland. The machine is based at IC's facility at Acacia Ridge, Brisbane, and would undertake work throughout Australia for power distributors or retailers.
