About Us

Ace Water Technology is a privately-owned Australian drilling company with vast experience in mineral and water exploration and a large fleet of multi-purpose drilling rigs to suit all aspects of the industry.

We want our customer to benefit from disruptive technologies that can deliver value to communities and solve long-standing problems such as water shortage and drought throughout Australia.
