ETD Series

In the oil & gas industry top drive technology is used to increase performance and safety; from Drillmec solid experience in manufacturing hydraulic pipe handling and top drives, we introduce the ETD Series.


The Drillmec Electric Top Drive is designed as transportable as well as permanent installed unit for deep drilling rigs with different mast types. The System is powered by an AC motor. The ETD Series is controlled by a separate control panel. The standard Top Drive version includes the following items:

  • Hanger assembly with integrated Counterbalance cylinders
  • Standard washpipe
  • Link-tilt-system with position monitoring designed for high impacts
  • Remote-controlled and manual IBOP
  • Backup Clamp to make up and break the Top Drive drill pipe connection
  • Guide rail system inducing the torque within the mast
  • Electrical service loop
  • Suitable for installation on any kind of mast and derrick

Top drives technology has gradually become almost the norm and standard in most drilling operations in the oil and gas industry today. The reason for this choice is not far-fetched, increased safety and performance is the major drive for the use of top drives. At Drillmec, we have over thirty years of experience in designing and producing top drives.
We offer mainly two classes of top drive which are the Hydraulic Series (HTD) and the Electric Series (ETD). We design portable top drives with permanent installation for both offshore and onshore drilling processes.
Our top drives are specially designed for easy integration with various mast designs and support both directional and horizontal drilling processes while delivering high performance and safety. Our standard top drives feature all the key elements of top drives such as standard washpipe, hanger assembly, link-tilt-system, remote-controlled and manual IBOP, and many others.
