Borehole design and drilling coordination for large scale industrial use


Borehole design and drilling

GEOSS is well known to come up with creative solutions for borehole design and drilling projects. GEOSS were appointed by a global beverage manufacturer to source groundwater supplies to be utilized in the manufacturing of their product. This project was necessitated by the drought in the Western Cape of South Africa in 2017 and 2018, where continuity of municipal supply was uncertain. GEOSS coordinated the project that included exploration drilling and ultimately the detailed design and construction of four 609 mm diameter production boreholes. The four boreholes facilitate the sustainable abstraction of over 400 Million Litres per year from a previously unidentified aquifer. GEOSS also managed the yield testing, modelling, water use licensing of the system, and continue to assist with monitoring and maintenance.
