In addition to providing drilling services, VLI manufactures and
sells specialised in-seam directional drilling systems to both the
Australian and overseas markets with large focus on the mining
industries in China, India and Europe.
Directional drill system supply into the overseas markets is being driven by the increasing adoption of mechanised best practice coal mining techniques and new underground coal mining projects. We have been actively developing relationships and educating the overseas coal industries in the use of in-seam directional drilling for gas drainage.
We have secured a major competitive advantage in China by being one of the few approved suppliers of in-seam directional drilling systems to the Chinese underground coal mining industry.
