Italian ground engineering manufacturer Soilmec will install Volvo Penta's new 13-litre Stage V solution in its SR-75 piling rig. Following a successful outcome of equipping the rig with Volvo Penta's EU Stage IIIA and Stage IV engines, Soilmec has selected the Swedish company's D13 Stage V solution for future production. The change comes ahead of the new emissions regulations coming into force in 2019.

One of the inherent challenges of drilling operations is the inability to see what’s being built at depth. Construction happens out-of-sight, underground, in soil or rock conditions that are only partially known.
Soilmec’s Drilling Mate System (DMS) is a high-tech, interactive system that allows drill rig operators and jobsite personnel to monitor and control drilling parameters and machine conditions in real-time. Data from an array of monitors and sensors on the drill rig are transmitted to the cab and can also be transmitted via Wi-Fi to a control center where Soilmec experts can help their customers troubleshoot.
Long-time Soilmec agent Champion Equipment Sales, LLC (CES) has announced a partnership with Paco Construction Equipment Company (PACO) to sell, lease, and service the Soilmec SM line of microdrilling rigs in the western U.S., and in British Columbia and Alberta Canada.
