A 200-year history of the Corps des Mines

In partnership with the Varel company, the Geosciences department exhibits in the Bérégovoy room of the Finance Ministry drilling tools which are the result of joint research. 

These tools show the various innovations and options implemented to improve performance as for durability and speed. From the shape of the blades to the size and the shape of the cutters, everything is studied and simulated from operating laws developed by the Geosciences department. The partnership in R&D implemented between MINES ParisTech and Varel has contributed to the development, the growth and the increasing international reputation of Varel, and has allowed many jobs to be created.
