Crossing under an interstate? No problem!

In March 2022, Brownline took part in an interesting drill job in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

To expand the Tuscaloosa power grid, REM Directional Drilling was commissioned to cross under interstate I-20/59 in order to install power cables. A challenging 1,661 foot path requiring very accurate steering, which is why Brownline was called in.

By combining our Gyro Steering Tool and a check from our GPS Track add-on, we were able to eliminate any issues of interference and verify that the pilot bore stayed right on track and punched out right on target. The efficiency of our tools ensured that the project was completed in a timely and cost-effective manner.
