The Geoquip Elena operates Geoquip Marine’s 20T deep-push seabed unit which safely and efficiently conducts an array of in situ tests.
When your project requires in situ testing, in either shallow or deep water, our seabed unit can be quickly deployed offering shorter turnaround times of tests and therefore reducing costs. The seabed system is deployed through the vessel’s moonpool.
Once operational on the seabed, the CPT unit relays data to an operator on board in real-time where it is then processed. The 200kN system provides a continuous profile of tip resistance, sleeve friction and pore water pressure, which can be used for the derivation of shear strength in cohesive soils and the relative density of non-cohesive soils.
The rig can reliably push to depths of more than 40m and is therefore ideally suited for gathering data for the construction of foundations for offshore windfarms.
