A crystallisation of quality and a solidification of service.


WHY igne was formed

Our clients are increasingly focused on operational resilience, affordability, new technologies and sustainability.

This affects the companies that supply these critical sectors. Today’s customers want actionable insight and critical services available on time, on budget, on scope.

Therefore, whilst the demand for high-quality site investigation and drilling services, and for water and energy resources from corporate and domestic customers remains intense, these services must be delivered more efficiently, effectively and sustainably than ever. To achieve this, excellence in terms of experience, expertise and equipment must be combined to ensure service delivery is integrated, through one supplier, not many.

This is why Igne was formed.

Igne offers high quality services shown as icons for site investigation, drilling, water resources and energy resources

In 2023, the best businesses in their respective fields combined to form Igne - ensuring service delivery for clients can be integrated - through one supplier - not many.

The best businesses in their respective fields were brought together as Igne to deliver integrated site investigation, testing, sustainable drilling, geo-environmental, geothermal and water supply services.

Igne’s team includes experienced engineers and skilled scientists who utilise specialist plant and equipment.

Igne’s size and reach means we have the capacity to deliver solutions nationwide.

Igne’s integrated offering ensures we can support the entire lifecycle of your project or simply supply a standalone service.

We are one company, with one team, working together to support you.
