ASFEU – Drilling Technology

One of the research goals was the investigation of a rotating arc, which we have integrated into our technology, and we were the first in the world to use this in the research of plasma drilling. We filed a critical patent application, and the patent is already granted.

On August 1st 2010 GA Drilling implemented a project entitled „Applied research and development of innovative drilling technology for ultra-deep geothermal wells” along with its partners, Institute of Materials & Machine Mechanics of Slovak Academy of Sciences, Comenius University in Bratislava and the Slovak Technical University in Bratislava.

The goal of the project was to create an innovative water jet generating system based on the use of electric-discharge plasma with increased pulse effect. The project consisted of six main activities and two supporting activities.

The length of the applied research project was 36 months and we achieved all set objectives. We would like to take up again with further research of innovative drilling technology for ultra-deep geothermal wells.

Currently, we are in a 5-year sustainability period when the project is being monitored.
