What we do

Our borehole arrays are designed to harvest the Sun’s heat, naturally stored in the ground. On average, we drill over 100km of geothermal boreholes each year, in arrays of between 2-200 holes, each between 80-250m deep. The boreholes are connected to adjoining headerworks, which provide a circulatory system for the thermal fluid, including a main feed to, and from, the heat pump.

When connected to Ground Source Heat Pumps, these networks of deep, geothermal boreholes and connecting pipework, provide heating, hot water and cooling to homes and businesses across the UK.

Our rigs are also equipped to construct deep or shallow groundwater wells, to provide water sources from underlying aquifers or act as a soakaway as part of a sustainable drainage scheme.

We regularly invest in the most up-to-date technology and equipment. We select the most flexible, powerful, and clean machinery for our fleet, specifically designed to enable us to deliver every project as effectively and efficiently as possible, with the minimum of damage or disruption to our clients or the surrounding area.

Our team specialises in both installation and project management, ensuring that clients have efficient boreholes when we leave the site, often based upon independent thermal response testing, to ensure reliable output. This can be offered as a full turnkey package including civils works for trenching and reinstatement as a Principal Contractor service.
