Raiseboring Romania

The raise bore technique was used for the extension of the Herculane and Cornereva shafts for the hydro powerplant.

In order to extend the ventilation shafts at a later date, pilot holes were drilled for extraction discharge using the raise bore technique. The extension boreholes were specified at 1420 mm diameter, whereby a high accuracy of 0.5 % was required. Depths of 73.0 m and 45.2 m were commissioned with pilot bores each of 8 ½".
