Geotechnical Field Investigations

Sintef uses a custom-built Geotech 504 drill rig for soil investigations.

The drilling rig can be easily dismantled in manageable parts for helicopter transport, if necessary. The drilling rig is equipped for different types of drilling and sounding, cone penetration testing (CPTU), permafrost coring and conventional piston sampling.
