The unique built-in rod rack and automated handling system performs safely and efficiently, increasing productivity whilst reducing manual handling and risk of injury. It comes complete with 240m rods (BR5O thread, 6m long with 10mm wall thickness and extra-long tool joints). The increased rod length and internal diameter vastly reduce wear and tear on the rig and ancillaries whilst increasing productivity. 

 

It is fitted with the powerful, world-renowned Doosan DL08 engine, producing a 292 BHP! This is one powerful rig, and is capable of supplying the mud pump and auxiliary pit pump without compromising the drilling capability.

 

It comes complete with a triplex piston pump & dual Caprari centrifugal mud pump capable of drilling down beyond 200m, lifting heavy London clays with ease. (Optional duplex piston pump for drilling beyond 200m)

The GTD6500R has been designed and engineered specifically for geothermal drilling & complex geology.

Suitable for both domestic and commercial drilling. It can drill beyond 400m and can perform mud, air and hammer drilling.

Why a GTD Drilling Rig?

The answer is simple... productivity!

 

Quite literally, our rigs drill down your cost per metre, both in purchase price and increased productivity. How? By outperforming other manufactures currently used in the ground source industry. A bold statement, but one that is backed up by fact and experience*.

These rigs hold the record for the most metres drilled, in the UK and Europe, both on a single day and over the course of a year. The long rod length, automated handling system and powerful engine means they are fast and capable. It is purposefully designed to simplify its operation, maintenance and fixes. The net result is less downtime and higher productivity.
