KBZ’s Brighter Future Myanmar Foundation, which has drilled more than 100 tube wells in arid areas nationwide, will use a modern drilling machine to drill further tube-wells in the country, it has been learned. The foundation has bought a modern machine manufactured by Dando company in England which is reportedly worth more than US$1 million. The new drill will begin operations in Bawsai, Shan State, under the  supervision of Mr Stanley Kirby, an expert from the company, according to the foundation.
The new machine can drill down to a depth of 1,800 feet. The previous machines used by the foundation could only drill to a depth to 1,000 ft. To combat water scarcity in arid areas across the country, the foundation implemented the water supply project on 11 March, 2014 with the use of six heavy machinery in Bawsai, Heho, Kalaw, Aungban, Pintaya, Taunggyi, Hopone and Namsam townships in Shan State, and Satsatyo Village in MyaukU District and Kyauktan Village in Chauk Township.  So far, 109 tube-wells have been drilled by the foundation.
