The rig is often mounted on trailers or trucks to make it mobile. A Borehole drilling machine prices in Kenya can cost about Ksh. 3 million for a heavy-duty single-unit drilling rig.

B/Drilling Cost For Different Counties

Requirements For Drilling

There are several factors influencing the overall cost of b/drilling. A few things that must be done include:

1. Investigating the Site Location

The place you desire your borehole to be drilled and the distance from the drilling company affects the cost. High logistic costs may be incurred if your place is too far from the drilling company you choose.

2. Assessing Water Table

A physical site survey or examination has to be done in order to determine issues such as whether or not that place can be a water source.

3. Geological Nature of the Site

Places that have tough ground and require much power to drill can cost higher compared to easy-to-drill places.

4. Depth of the Hole

A higher depth and larger width hole uses a lot of resources to drill which can be reflected in the overall cost of the project

5. Type of Pump

The suitability of a pump to be used for each drilled hole is different depending on the depth of the hole and the general geological nature of the site.

Types of borehole pumps include solar water pumps or electric water pumps. You can read more about solar-powered water pumps in Kenya here.

6. You Need a License

A permit to allow the drilling company drills your site is mandatory and needs some money.

7. Company Policy Requirement

Companies charge differently for drilling a borehole. Some borehole drilling companies may charge per cubic meter.

However, other companies sum up the whole cost together with the company’s profit and then give the cost for the whole project.
