Synergy Boreholes and Systems Ltd. invests in order to drill cost effectively, cleanly and in a way least burdening to the environment. Our modern drilling rigs come from Comacchio, the industry leader in Italy. Our mechanised mud recycling equipment is imported from the USA and avoids disruption and mess on site.

With immediate effect, we offer to our customers requiring 10 boreholes or more, the benefits of our latest acquisition, the MC900GT drill, designed specifically for high volume geothermal borehole drilling. It will drill geothermal boreholes more rapidly, more reliably and above all, more cost effectively, than any other drill of comparable size. The workrate results in geothermal borehole completion speeds double those of conventional rigs, with all the associated advantages in terms of project execution speed and cost. Its compact dimensions also allow its use in constricted domestic/urban environments where GSHP’s of more than 50 kW are required.

Protective tubing (casing) is inserted simultaneously with the drilling operation to depths of up to 150 metres. This prevents borehole collapse and allows fail-safe insertion of the geothermal loop down the tubing.

Features of the MC900GT can be summed up as 

 SPEED and therefore

 COST ADVANTAGE  (where the client participates!)

Our location just south of Oxford gives us excellent access to all Southern/Central regions. On larger, or more urgent projects, our other Comacchio 450, 450P.1 drills will assist the MC900GT

Commenting on the new machine, Synergy MD Antony Jennings said :

"As more and larger geothermal heating systems are installed in constricted urban areas, together with increasing pressures on speed of execution and project cost, the advantages of the high speed automatic MC900GT will definitely allow Synergy to expand our share of the geothermal drilling market.
