About Borterra

Borterra is a division of MEDATECH engineering dedicated to the development of customized drilling technologies. The division acts as an integrator and OEM that operates on a project basis. The drills are customized according to customer requirements and local conditions. Borterra helps clients solve specific problems by developing a prototype and eventually implementing it. The key criteria for the drilling equipment are that the machinery must be low on energy consumption with high power output, drill deeper with minimal impact on the surrounding ground, reduce environmental impact and minimize hole deviation.
