Our Story

As the population grows, so does our need to access the earth’s resources. Strada’s patented technology is designed to allow low-cost access to deep resources anywhere in the world.

Our technology unlocks the resources of the earth to solve the biggest problems we have today. We are able to drill in a more efficient, responsible way, and to enable the conversion of existing fossil fuel sites into geothermal alternatives. We do this using our highly innovative, unique, dual circulation, water hammer drilling technology.

Using our drilling industry knowledge, we have evolved traditional technology and developed what we believe to be one of the fastest, safest and most cost-effective solutions in the world. This allows operators to tap into a vast energy resource, making drilling in hard granite, or for geothermal power possible, and affordable anywhere in the world.

When you change the rules, you change the future.

‘We’re fourth-generation drillers. My grandfather and great-grandfather drilled water bores in the outback of Western Australia. They were bushmen at heart. My family have specialised in reverse circulation drilling which produces rock samples to analyse for mineral deposits.

Improving drilling methods and safety has always been important to us. We have a history of adapting our tech equipment and rigs to make them more efficient and safer. We’ve spent generations in this industry, innovating and inventing the way we drill and as a result,  we’ve developed an extensive drilling-related patent portfolio. We’ve redesigned drilling from the ground down. When we saw the issues the industry faced, with drilling in hard granite, and especially with geothermal access, we knew we had the drilling knowledge and the IP to turn the problem around and finally solve those challenges.

Our low cost and fast deep drilling methods make many projects possible and profitable, irrespective of resource depth and local geology. Up to now, drilling this quickly and efficiently, in hard terrain, has only been possible in certain geographies and parts of the world. With our technology, that map is unlimited.’
