Hotspur Geothermal owns and operates a 92 tonne Atlas CopCo ‘Predator’ rig, one of the fastest and most manoeuvrable drilling rigs in the world.


The Predator rig is ideally suited for geothermal exploration and production drilling; onshore oil and gas drilling; and mineral exploration. Hotspur Geothermal have proven the success of a mixed-fleet drilling strategy for geothermal production drilling at Menengai Crater, Kenya.

Hotspur Geothermal’s drilling rig offers a one of a kind alternative to conventional drilling approaches: there is no single rig on the African continent with its capabilities, whether rigging-up, drilling to depth, casing, or reducing energy consumption whilst drilling.
