Geothermal Anywhere is the very initial point, why Igor, Dusan, Ivan and Tomas founded GA Drilling in 2008. We aim to make the idea of geothermal energy anywhere and for anyone in the world to happen.

After years of research & development of contactless plasma drilling and milling, as well as substantial infrastructure investments, we reached an advanced level of expertise and high self-sufficiency in manufacturing and testing.
