Pressbohrtechnik
Explanation:
If it is a translation to the Pressbohrtechnik Gmbh, then no translation.

If it does not refer to the name of the manufacturer, I would translate pressbohren with \"thrust boring\"

In fact after googeling a bit on the keywords in question, I came across this site by a company called Perforator that presents their new \"Thrust Boring Machines\" with \"Hydraulic
Power Packs\" :

http://www.perforator.net/boringmachines.html

This appears to be what is talked about in your text and it might be a good idea to simply copy the terminology they use.

agree  gangels: pressure drilling technology, but sort of redundant

agree  ECP11: in this syntactical context it is most likely a company's name

agree  matias: If it is company's name, it'd better refering to their own translation

agree  rjbemben: 'von' often means 'from the company'; I note on the Web that 'Perforator' is a drilling equipment company too.

Explanation:
Sounds like pipe-jacking to me, although I haven't come across "Pressbohren" before.
