Borehole Drillings

Drilling a borehole is a complex task that incorporates a number of stages: Planning and drilling; manufacturing water pumps suited to the discharge rate required; manufacture, installation and wiring of all the electromechanical equipment;  EMS Mekorot Projects carries out such projects, from beginning to end, using a turnkey method.


EMS operates a drilling unit, whose drilling teams work day and night. The unit has many years of experience in various types of drilling throughout the country.


  • Shallow and deep boreholes up to 1,500 m. in depth.


  • Deep boreholes drilled using four dedicated rotary drilling rigs.


  • Shallow boreholes drilled using two dedicated reverse circulation drilling rigs.

Examples of such complex projects includethe traversing of Road 4 project in establishing the 90,000 cu. m. Hadera reservoir, laying a 100" diameter pipeline at the Holon interchange, transposing a pipeline at a railway level crossing (for the construction of a flyover) and transposing pipelines in preparation for improving Public Works Dept. infrastructure at the Ra’anana North interchange.



EMS Mekorot Projects is currently carrying out a project of diverting a pipeline for Israel Railways, prior to laying the railway line from Ashkelon to Sderot.
