For more than 100 years, the Thyssen Group has been at the forefront of the ground stabilization technology known around the globe as artificial ground freezing -- a construction technique utilized in poor ground conditions and/or high water inflows. The Thyssen Group has used this ground stabilization method for over 100 years with the first artificial ground freeze project having been completed in 1905. In 1960, Thyssen Mining introduced artificial ground freezing to the Canadian mining industry when the first potash shaft in Saskatchewan was successfully completed to depth. To date, the Thyssen Group has safely completed shaft sinking operations for more than 90 frozen shafts through 30 kilometers of frozen ground, with a frozen shaft depth of up to 860 meters.
Thyssen Mining has assisted the petroleum industry with both the recovery and non-routine abandonment of damaged or deformed well casings. We bring practical and value-added solutions to these complex and difficult projects and, as a result, Thyssen Mining has become the contractor of choice for the petroleum industry.
