Numac Drilling Services are Australia's premier environmental drillers and drilling contractors. Our company operates a fleet of 6 Geoprobe® machines from depots in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Cairns servicing all metropolitan and rural areas. All of our highly experienced environmental and geotechnical drilling operators are Certificate III qualified in Drilling Operations and hold minimum Class 1 Water-Well licences in Vicotria, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Northern Territory..
With the addition of sonic drill rigs to our fleet, we now offer the most effective solutions for landfill gas sampling and installation. Our suite of HRSC tools for real-time delineation of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) ensures we can provide a more comprehensive ground investigation and site assessment than other environmental assessment contractors and environmental drilling companies in Australia.
