Geoquip Marine provides the geotechnical data required to design seabed structures for windfarms and tidal energy systems. From basic soil sampling through to high tech in situ testing methods like High Pressure Dilatometers, Seismic PCPT’s and P-S suspension logging, we can deliver the data which ultimately provides the required design parameters for subsea foundation structures.
As a global provider of offshore geotechnical services we currently operate five drilling vessels servicing the offshore industry. Each of the geotechnical spreads include downhole piston and push samplers, hammer samplers, downhole core barrels and wireline PCPT tools. In addition, we operate a mobile spread which can be mobilised onto a Jack-up rig suitable for use in shallow water depths, featuring the same sampling and testing capabilities. All our offshore spreads are equipped with a soils laboratory, catering for any type of geotechnical investigation, be it for an oil and gas platform, wind turbine generator, suction anchor or any other form of offshore foundation. We also operate downhole seismic PCPT, PS-logging and pressure meter equipment.
Geoquip Marine’s experienced in-house engineering teams are capable of undertaking engineering design for piled foundations, drivability spudcan penetration assessment and mudmat capacity analysis. We take pride in enhancing our site investigation services with offshore real time engineering. This allows our clients, with our experienced geotechnical engineers, to adapt the geotechnical program to the encountered site conditions, therefore ensuring we meet or exceed the objectives of the client.
