A behind-the-scenes tour of the Eden Geothermal drilling rig

If you’ve ever wondered what it was like behind the scenes on the drilling rig used on our geothermal well last year, now’s your chance to find out. Join Eden Geothermal Drilling Engineer Robbie Bilsland as he takes you on a beginners’ tour of MND’s Bentec 450 Eurorig, the 55m-high rig that temporarily took over the skyline and enabled us to drill more than 5km into the granite.

A big thank you to our friends at Exeter Science Centre for producing this video as part of their ‘ESC Live’ project. The project, funded by the Engineering Education Grant Scheme, aims to engage young people aged 4-19 in learning about engineering and engineering careers, and to develop the skills of those involved in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) learning.
