Hydracrat offers specialist rotary borehole drilling services for ground investigations, geothermal, water wells, earthing rod installations and large diameter boreholes.
Founded in February 1960, we hold significant experience in planning, execution and reporting on a diverse range of projects.
Hydracrat is home to the renowned HYCAT drilling rig fleet, which are all designed, built and maintained in-house by our dedicated team.
We work on all kinds of sites with our plant being especially capable of traversing the most soft, arduous terrain known to the industry.
All our operations aim to reduce environmental damage.
The comprehensive ground investigation package included rotary probe, open-hole and core drilling through Opencast backfill up to 60mbgl. The programme also included trial pits, geophysical survey transects, plate bearing tests, laboratory testing and the felling of a decommissioned met mast.
In 2017, Hydracrat Ltd won a competitive tender on quality, ingenuity and price and was duly appointed by Ravenscraig Ltd under the technical guidance of SWECO as Principle Contractor to undertake a geo-environmental investigation at the former Ravenscraig Steel Works in Lanarkshire.
