GeoSmart's Drill Rig

GeoSmart Drill Rig Makes Its Mark at Canwell 2010 Symposium in Manitoba

May 30, 2010

GeoSmart Energy was front and centre at the Canwell 2010 Symposium hosted by the Manitoba Water Well Association and the Manitoba Geothermal Energy Alliance (MGEA) in Winnipeg, Manitoba, May 26-29, 2010.

Our 40’ x 60’ booth was the perfect venue for showcasing our extensive line of heating and cooling solutions, our indoor air quality products and our industry-leading PE100 polyethylene pipe. But what stole the show was GeoSmart’s new custom-designed geothermal drill rig.

The compact DeltaBase 95GT drill rig was built by manufacturer Boart Longyear leveraging GeoSmart expertise and features high efficiency hydraulics and dual rotary capability. A radio remote provides even greater flexibility in tight spaces and safely positions the operator away from the drill hole.

The drill rig generated considerable ‘buzz’ at the show, performing at the top of its class alongside other geothermal drill rigs during an outdoor drilling and geothermal demonstration in downtown Winnipeg. While the demonstration wasn’t a competition, our compact rig managed to surpass the drilling depth of other rigs by 47 feet and attracted the largest audience. We were pleased to field numerous inquiries about our attractive drill rig throughout the four-day symposium.

The conference, trade show and demonstrations is Canada’s premier groundwater symposium attracting professionals in the groundwater industry from Canada and abroad. Keynote speakers throughout the four days included The Honourable Christine Melnick, Minister of Water Stewardship, The Honourable Stephen Fletcher, Minister of State and former Manitoba Premier and Governor General of Canada, The Right Honourable Edward Schreyer.

It was a great opportunity to network with manufacturers, suppliers, contractors and scientists and to showcase why GeoSmart Energy has quickly become one of North America’s largest purveyors of geothermal technology and training.
