The FS 250 drilling rig is at work in Saharan desert zone for geophysical researches.

It was a great satisfaction for Fraste supplying a new FS 250 drilling rig last October 2015 to a worldwide customer, leader in the geophysical research.

This customer already bought in 2003 one of our drilling rig for seismic research and now with the second unit he is confirming his appreciation for Fraste production.

His request was for a rig designated to geophysical research capable of working under extreme conditions, especially in Sahara desert areas, highly liable and able to move on rough terrains, without traced roads: practically highly agile, fast and at the end powerful.

The drilling rig had to be able to work at high temperatures, in very dusty ambient and it needed an adequate cooling system and air/oil filtering system, suitable to face severe environmental conditions.
