Solving Construction Problems at Solar Development

A local solar developer was having trouble installing support posts for their solar farm.  The ground was filled with large cobbles, boulders and a shallow bedrock surface which was hindering their plan to simply use a pile driver to install the posts.  The posts were not reaching their target depth and many of the posts that were reaching depth were getting badly bent and twisted. This problem was causing a delay in their construction schedule and a large cost overrun in materials.

We worked with the developer to develop a plan and within days two T4W air rotary rigs were mobilized to the site to pre-drill holes for the posts.  Complicating this effort was the fact that many of the off-spec holes were between framework that was already installed so the rigs had to maneuver to reach each  hole location.  Our crews worked hard to not only pre-drill the holes, but also move materials and coordinate with other trades to complete the work. Our crews easily out-produced other drilling contractors on-site which created great value for our client.

Eight foot deep holes with an air rotary rig is not complicated drilling, but this project demonstrates our ability to work with our clients to solve problems and our ability to execute these solutions.

HRS Welcomes Andrew Wadden as Operations Manager

September 2015 – The HRS and B&B drilling companies have hired Andrew Wadden to serve as Operations Manager.  andrewAndrew’s role will include everything from proposals and business development through project management and execution.  He also brings different perspective to the company as he began his career in the environmental consulting business.

Andrew served as an environmental scientist and project manager during his 10 year career in environmental consulting prior to joining HRS.  During that time he managed several large field investigations which were heavily drilling-focused.  He is knowledgeable on all phases of environmental work from Phase I’s through Remedial Actions and the NJ Site Remediation Program requirements.

“As a consultant I worked with a number of drilling companies and B&B always stood out because of their employees.  From the drillers and helpers to the management they would always accommodate any new or changing project needs and consistently had solutions to any project difficulties.  This commitment to client service was the main reason why I was so eager to join their company, and it is something I hope to contribute to.” – Andrew
