MC900GT (*2)

Synergy Boreholes and Systems Ltd. invests in order to drill cost effectively, cleanly, 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.

We offer to our customers requiring 10 boreholes or more, the benefits of our two MC900GT drills, designed specifically for high volume geothermal borehole drilling. They drill more rapidly, more reliably and above all, more cost effectively, than any other drill of comparable size. This workrate results in geothermal borehole completion speeds double those of conventional rigs, with all the associated advantages. Their compact dimensions also allow use in constricted domestic/urban environments where GSHP’s of more than 30 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.

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
