A thorough understanding of siting issues is essential for the success of any construction project: offshore geotechnical surveys in deep water, near shore and at landfalls, as well as onshore investigations, provide companies with reliable basic data for designs and support with geotechnical engineering and monitoring services.
Investigations for marine constructions include:
Geotechnical investigations from dedicated drilling vessels or jack-up platforms include:
We have been continuously active in geotechnical offshore surveys for decades, with a significant track record in shallow to deep water, mainly for oil & gas projects.
We use our dedicated containerized field laboratories for testing on board of vessels or in remote field locations. Standard and advanced testing, as well as sedimentology core logging, are carried out in our laboratory in Genoa, Italy.
