Drilling Solutions Products Seminar


May 8, 2009, ADS CC GC CMT held a Drilling Solutions Products Seminar with the theme of “Listening, Sharing, and Developing”, which was a part of the event held in Nanjing, China of the 15th Anniversary Celebration of Atlas Copco (Nanjing) Construction and Mining Equipment Ltd. and the Inauguration of New Facility of Customer Center & Product Company. 

 Mr. Robert Fassl, President of Atlas Copco Drilling Solutions AB, Mr. Steven Ma, Engineering Manager from the US facility, and Mr. Hubert Luo, Product Manager of Atlas Copco (Nanjing) Construction & Mining Equipment Co., Ltd. attended the seminar. More than 30 representatives from the existing and potential customers of ADS around the country, including Mr. Wang Guoyi, Vice General Manager of Qinshui Lanyan Coalbed Methane Co., Ltd., Mr. Fan Wanqing, Chief Engineer of No. 1 Team Shandong Coalfield Geology Bureau, Mr. Gong Yongjun, Vice General Manager of Mining Company of Benxi Steel Group, and Mr. Ge Decheng, Vice General Manager of Shenhua Zhunge’er Energy Co., Ltd., and ADS staff participated the seminar.
Mr. Robert Fassl stressed in his address that in the future all drilling rigs needed in China will be manufactured in Nanjing and the Chinese facilities will independently improve existing drilling products and even develop new models in accordance with the demands of Chinese customers.
Mr. Hubert Luo made a detailed introduction of the existing products. Together with Mr. Steven Ma and Mr. Jia Ai, Key Account Manager of ADS CC GC CMT,he also discussed the advantages of Atlas Copco rotary drilling rigs and issues that concerned customers, such as drilling operation at high altitude etc.
At high altitude, thin air makes the cooling system of drilling rig less efficient and the air compressor inadequate in air supply which may result difficulty in cutting removal, repeated breaking, decreased drilling efficiency, and higher wear of drilling tool. In this case, Atlas Copco rotary drilling rigs adopt large displacement air compressors, which are capable of supplying sufficient compressed air in plateau areas where air intake rate suffers significant drop to support cuttings removal and ensure high drilling efficiency and low drilling cost.
Mr. Robert Fassl also guaranteed the availability of spare parts to users - Atlas Copco and its Chinese distributors will jointly increase the spare parts stock for the existing imported drilling rigs. In the future, localized production and stock of spare parts will completely meet customer demands as the localization rate of drilling rig manufacture is being improved in China.
