Why Construction Projects in St Georges Basin Need Core Drilling Services

It sounds like a specialised construction area, but core drilling is one of the most common (and necessary) phases in building residential and commercial structures. It's also frequently used in everyday projects like installing phone lines, neighbourhood plumbing, HVAC ducting, setting up sprinkler systems, and so much more. So, what exactly is core drilling?

Core drilling is actually a practice that dates back to the Ancient Egyptians, who also used this technique to 'core' through geologic formations and built incredible monuments. In the modern-day context, core drilling contractors can use this drilling method for environmental industry projects, subsurface investigations (to find out if the land can support your intended design and engineering decisions), and to cut through concrete walls, floors, ceilings, and other structures. The holes can be drilled at any angle, whether horizontal or vertical.

When it comes to concrete core drilling, core drilling contractors will rely on hard coring. This type of core drilling uses two nested barrels and is used to cut through very hard material like rock or, in this case, concrete. It's also called diamond coring. Core drilling companies in St Georges Basin can drill holes as small as three-fourths of an inch to as large as 73 inches. The process is dust-free, non-percussive, and is also low on noise.

So how does it work? The process of concrete core drilling uses a diamond cutting end attached to a steel tube. First, technicians will need to perform pre-drilling clearance, which is where they mark sensitive areas to indicate rods, conduits, water mains, and more. Next, core drilling contractors will attach the rig to the floor surface using an anchor or vacuum seal. While the rig digs the hole or "cores" the surface, it is cooled by water, which reduces friction. Once the slug is drawn back up and removed, you're left with a perfect hole.

These types of drilled holes are required for construction projects in:

  • Airport runway lighting
  • Manholes
  • Culverts
  • Building construction
  • HVAC and piping

You can see how many of these projects are public works that affect the community you live in. That's why it's so important to ensure that the right core drilling company is responsible for your construction project.

Victoria-New South Wales Interconnector Funding Approved

Funding for the Victoria-New South Wales Interconnector (VNI Minor) has been approved by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER), which will play a significant role in bolstering the electricity supply following the closure of Liddell Power Station in August 2023.The Australian Energy Market Operator’s (AEMO) 2020 Integrated System Plan (ISP) identified VNI Minor as a project required to address cost, security and reliability issues in the National Electricity Market.AER Chair, Clare Savage, said, “VNI Minor was proposed by AEMO in their role as the national planner responsible for identifying new transmission needs to support the energy system’s transition.“In our role, we’ve assessed TransGrid’s proposed costs and determined that they are reasonable. The AER has approved the $45 million that is needed to deliver the project.“The project will increase transmission capacity between New South Wales and Victoria and provide consumers with secure and reliable energy supplies.”VNI Minor is the first ‘actionable project’ to progress under new rules governing the ISP and the AER’s decision is the final stage in the regulatory process.The new rules require the AER to assess the prudence and efficiency of the costs of delivering the option found to offer the highest net market benefits in AEMO’s ISP.The AER’s decision amends TransGrid’s existing 2018-23 revenue determination to account for the costs of delivering the project.Average residential customers in New South Wales will pay an estimated extra $1 on their bills in 2022-23 as a result of this decision.TransGrid Project Director, Dany Gittani, said, “The VNI Minor project will allow more energy to flow between the two states and help lower the cost of wholesale electricity across the National Electricity Market.“The VNI Minor project involves TransGrid installing ‘smart wires’ power flow controller technology within our Stockdill substation in the ACT.‘Smart wires’ technology enables the real-time control of electricity flows along powerlines. The system detects areas of congestion in the network and automatically redirects flows to less congested lines, under certain network scenarios. It will allow more energy to be transferred between Victoria and NSW.“The AER decision enables us to deliver the project to fruition this year.”
