At Teckna Group, we are committed to providing dedicated ground source heat pump drilling services. We cover all aspects of Ground Source Heat projects all the way from the installation of geothermal boreholes with our specialist equipment where they are needed to the installation of connection pipe work and manifolds. We also provide more specialised thermal response tests for design of the borehole array installation, as we look to offer the most complete service possible.
Geothermal bore drilling projects are undertaken nationally for single or multi borehole installations working with both private, domestic clients or multinational companies. Our industry expertise allows us to offer our top quality service to anyone who requires us!
How we work
To ensure that our practice is held in the highest regard, we work with some of the very best out there. These include MCS GSHP partners, who offer full turnkey ground source heat pump drilling and installation packages. This is done to utilise the best choice of system to suit your bespoke geothermal borehole drilling project, ensuring that the best result is had at all times. To achieve the best, you have to use the best, right? This is why we use Dimplex, Vaillant, Worcester Bosch, Steibel, Eltron, Kensa or NIBE heat pumps throughout the UK to reach the desired outcome.
Upon completion, all of our geothermal boreholes are pressure tested to ensure the integrity of the ground source loop, as well as to make sure that the grouting process can be effective. This is then documented so that the client is issued with certification of the pressure test, evidencing our thorough and in depth care and attention to your specific project. Should we install the connection pipe work, this will also be pressure tested and certified. Pipework, if required, can then be sanitised and flushed before the final addition of the heat transfer fluid, ready for connection to the ground source heat pump.
All ground source heat pump loops and connecting pipework is installed with electro-fused couplers. They are also quality assured with our electro-fusion equipment with borehole loops, geothermal pipework and fittings made from PE100+ polymer to ensure the highest quality of installation and compliance with the Vertical Borehole Standards (2011).
Teckna Group, working with our specialist geothermal and water hydrologist, can also offer geological surveys for basic geological and heat assessments through to more complex ground modelling and borehole field design. If required, we can perform thermal response testing to complement our other geothermal services.

How deep down does geothermal drilling go?
The depth of the hole that is drilled during geothermal bore drilling varies from project to project. Our initial assessments will evaluate the surrounding area and what the objective of the project is. We will then discuss as a team, and with the client, how far down we will be able to drill and if this suits your needs.
In order for geothermal drilling to be at its most effective, we usually look to drill between 250-300 feet underground. This depth will allow there to be maximum results so you can really get the most out of your investment. Before any decisions are made, we will always inform you on how deep we intend to drill on your premises, as well as giving you our reasons why.
Where can geothermal take place?
The beauty of the geothermal borehole drilling process is that it can be performed just about anywhere! No matter if you own your own home and want a borehole drilled in your garden or anywhere on your premises or a business owner that needs geothermal boreholes to keep your industrial business running at maximum potential, we have you covered.
Of course, projects require in-depth research and planning to ensure that your plot is the most effective location for borehole drilling to take place. But with one visit from our experts to your facilities, we’re able to quickly give you the evaluation you require when deciding where the perfect spot for your geothermal drill may be.
Usually, as long as there is enough space to work with, you should get the green light for your geothermal borehole drilling project. But, if we feel like there may be an area of land that is better suited to achieving your requirements, we will use our experience and judgement to let you know.
How long do geothermal boreholes last?
Geothermal borehole drilling is performed with the confidence that your borehole will last for many years to come, in the harshest of conditions! We still keep in touch with many of the clients that we have dealt with many years ago, with each reporting that their drill is still working as if it was recently installed. We take the quality of our output very seriously here at Teckna Group, as after every project we want to make sure you get the most out of your investment.
The boreholes installed by our team are known to have lasted 40 years+, some feat considering the potentially treacherous environment that they operate in! No matter where you’re looking to locate your borehole, you can be safe in the knowledge that the Teckna Group experts will supply you with a high performance, long lasting solution!
