ECA Group was awarded an order from the KWB coal mine company in Belchatow (Poland) for a BH Viewer 500 TV inspection system that can operate inside wells with depth up to 500m.
Due to the presence of groundwater underneath, it’s mandatory to pump water out so as to keep the water table low enough to prevent any risk of the mine getting flooded. This KWB coal mine has on its site several hundreds of 500m deep wells, which are regularly inspected on a daily basis.
This new BH Viewer 500 inspection equipment will replace a similar equipment bought from ECA Group almost two decades ago.
This contract has been obtained with the support of KREA Sp z.o.o, ECA Group agent in Poland, based in Cracow.
