On the 16th Februrary 2015 the Internationale Geotextil GmbH handed over a HydroSeeder FINN T 170 (tank capacity ca. 6.600 litres) with Cummins diesel engine to the Mitteldeutsche Braunkohlegesellschaft mbH.
The exploration and dewatering division’s drilling department of MIBRAGS’s open pit mining operation will use the HydroSeeder for the rinsing of the boreholes in reconnaissance drilling in the open pit mining operations Profen and Vereinigtes Schleenhain.
For this purpose the HydroSeeder, originally constructed for Hydroseeding, was modified and equipped with a Storz-coupling to connect a B-fire hose. Furthermore the HydroSeeder has no spray gun for greening work.
The drillings serve to explore the subsoil for later open pit mining and as a suction well for the lowering of groundwater in open-cast mining. With the help of the HydroSeeder the sometimes more than 100 meters deep holes are flushed and stabilized. In addition the rinsing has the effect that the drilling tool is cooled.
After the delivery of a FINN T 170 HydroSeeder in spring of 2013 to the Gala-MIBRAG Service GmbH, this is the second delivery of a HydroSeeder from the Internationale Geotextil GmbH to the MIBRAG group.

The FINN T 170 HydroSeeder is filled with the special jetting liquid at the storage yard of the drilling department.
