Star on the surface

2005 Jan 18

Surface drilling equipment has been vastly improved in recent years in terms of performance, economy, safety and operator comfort. But among the many advanced rigs at work around the world, there is one that clearly rises above all the rest.

Atlas Copco?s ROC D7 RRC remote controlled surface crawler is one of the most popular drilling rigs of its kind in Scandinavia. In Norway alone, more than 20 have been purchased by drilling contractors since it was introduced in October 2003, and it is becoming the rig of choice in many other countries around the world.

Epiroc operated under the trademark “Atlas Copco” prior to January 1, 2018.
