A comprehensive range of geotechnical solutions

To provide further understanding of the composition of sediments at and below the seabed, geotechnical sampling is undertaken. Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) provides in-situ measurements of a soil’s properties, while a vibrocorer is used to provide physical sediment samples that can be analysed in further detail.

Geotechnical analysis supports ground-truthing of geophysical data, providing greater certainty of physical seabed properties across the survey area. Running geotechnical operations alongside hydrographic survey, geophysical survey and other work packages improves value through fewer mobilisations and acquisition synergies.
