Unlike most of the renewable energy sources, geothermal does not depend on weather, wind or solar radiation. Rather, it is based on temperature differences between the interior of the earth and the surface. Therefore, it is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. To take advantage of this energy, a hole is drilled through various formations until contact with a hot fluid is made. The heat is extracted and used for different applications.
In a vertical capture project, geothermal energy can have many factors that impede its implementation, mainly in the installation phase of the geothermal probes. To achieve the desired result, use of the latest technologies and specific drilling techniques that allow introduction of the probe to the specified depth are required. Drilling depths can range from 50 metres to 200 metres often making it necessary for intubation of the probe partial or completely. Due to the difficulties and challenges associated with geothermal, only the highest quality tools and equipment can be used. TDS can offer these tools, along with the advice of our experts.
