Machbarkeitsstudie Tauchbohrroboter

At a glance


Current methods for drilling geothermal wells (especially deep geothermal wells > 500 m) are very expensive, labour-intensive and require a lot of space to drill the well. HammerDrum AG is now pursuing the goal of eliminating these disadvantages with a new drilling process. The idea is to develop a drilling robot that is located directly in the borehole and moves autonomously. This technology has two important advantages: firstly, the process is extremely space-saving, meaning that even urban areas can be retrofitted with geothermal probes. Secondly, the costs per metre of progress do not increase exponentially to the same extent as is the case with conventional methods thanks to a high degree of automation and lower complexity. As a result, drilling at great depths can be economical.
