Boreholes for ground source heat pumps
ADP Group can quickly, efficiently and professionally install ground source heat collector loops using innovative and modern drilling rigs.
If you are considering installing a ground source heating system have you considered the use of vertical boreholes? Did you know that vertical borehole heat collectors operate at a higher efficiency, I.E. produce a higher heat yield per metre, than horizontal collectors?
Further benefits include the footprint required for geothermal boreholes, or lack of; borehole arrays can take up very little space, and once completed are buried below ground level. You can even build on top of completed borehole arrays!
What do we do
ADP Group can provide private domestic customers and commercial projects with a one stop solution, comprising of the following:
- Drilling of geothermal boreholes to prescribed depths using the latest, automated, rotary drilling rigs from Comacchio.
- Management of all arising material and drilling fluid via our track-mounted mud cleaning systems, ensuring a clean, efficient presence onsite, and no lasting legacy once the works are completed.
- Supply & installation of high quality PE100 GSHP collector loops.
- Tremmie grouting upon completion of installation.
- Post-installation pressure and flow testing.
ADP Group own and operate some of the most technically advanced, state-of-the-art equipment available.
Rigs are supplied by industry leading, Italian manufacturer, Comacchio. Mud cleaning systems from American manufacturers Tibban and Elgin, with the latter supplying track mounted, self-sufficient systems.
Grouting of the completed boreholes is undertaken with grout mix/pump units from Putzmeister.
All equipment is compliant with the latest emmission stages, therefore allowing it to work within ULEZ’s throughout the UK, and ensuring that the installation of the renewable heating system is done in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
Further information on all equipment can be found on our rotary drilling rig page.
