Groundsource Borehole Drilling
Aquasource (SW) Ltd have successfully completed 1280m of groundsource heat pump boreholes on one site for a local company at a project near Wadebridge in Cornwall.
The ‘down the hole hammer’ drilling technique was used to drill the holes.
The borehole comprise 10 number, 127mm diameter holes drilled to a depth of 120m.
There was also a requirement for an additional 80m hole for a separate system on site.
Because a design life of 25+ years was required crack resistant polyethylene Geothermal probes were inserted into the holes.
To ensure maximum performance the boreholes were backfilled with thermally conductive material.
Header Pipework for Groundsource.
The required header pipe linkup will also be carried out by Aquasource (SW) Ltd.
This will involve the installation of an underground groundsource chamber manifold and all pipework needed to connect the boreholes to the manifold and from the manifold to the property.
All pipework will be joined using electrofusion techniques and pressure tested on completion.
