Hanson Aggregates Marine Ltd Site Visit 

 

CMS-Geotech has a long and successful working relationship with Hanson Aggregates Marine Ltd and we were particularly delighted to get some really warm praise after their recent site visit to inspect the latest batch of core samples we collected for them.

Nigel Griffiths, Principal Resources Manager at Hansons recently spent a day at our Lowestoft site along with his colleague Amy Stewart and our Geotechnical Engineer Dan Farrow, reviewing and checking the core samples we collected for them on a recent Vibrocoring campaign.

 

After the visit Nigel commented “The ‘guys’ have worked really hard on these and delivered as promised. Our last visit re-inforced the care and thoroughness of the logging and analysis which is hugely important"

Our team rocks! 

 

Our team of Geotech engineers never cease to amaze with their skill. These samples, using our High Powered Vibrocore, show a complete core sample of chalk! Nothing seems to phase our team or our equipment … not even rock!

Pretty awesome stuff!

CMS-Geotech chosen by James Fisher Marine Services for

Galloper Project

 

Lowestoft based multipurpose vessel MV FlatHolm finished off a busy year in 2016 with a successful charter to James Fisher Marine Services Ltd, undertaking a variety of service activities in connection with the Galloper Offshore Wind Farm during November and December. The Galloper project was busy, last year, with turbine foundation preparation and MV FlatHolm provided daily cover, making sure the site was clear and checking for hazards and obstructions which might have hindered operations with the scour protection rock placement work. Being based locally in Lowestoft, MV FlatHolm was able to be on standby for any situation which might require immediate deployment, offering efficient and cost effective support whenever needed. The versatile and popular 24m vessel also completed operations with the deployment of two Triaxis waverider buoys before the planned charter conclusion.

UXO Detection using CPT Magnetometer Cone.

 

As part of its continued growth and strategic development CMS-Geotech has recently purchased the Datem Magnetometer Cone for use with its existing Datem Neptune 5000 CPT to support specialist UXO detection services

 

The high-quality titanium and stainless steel Magnetometer Cone incorporates a standard 5cm2 piezocone with sensors for axial load, friction sleeve, pore pressure & dual axis tilt combined with a bespoke magnetometer module.   This new cone is capable of repeatable, high performance operation with very low noise and works simultaneously with the CPT allowing the collection of standard CPT data whilst monitoring variations in localised magnetic fields caused by the presence of ferrous metal objects. These magnetic readings are shown in real time both graphically & numerically and are recorded along with the standard CPT data for later analysis.

 

CMS-Geotech has quickly developed an enviable reputation within the industry for providing high quality CPT data to clients involved in Oil & Gas, cable laying, dredging & offshore construction as well as within Ports & Harbours around Europe. This additional capability will allow CMS Geotech to offer UXO or ferrous metal detection at up to 20m below seabed prior to excavation, dredging or piling helping to ensure project risks are reduced to ALARP levels.

 

 Using the turnkey solution of combined Datem 5000 CPT & Magnetometer Cone to collect both soil engineering information and detect the presence of ferrous metal materials simultaneously offers the client the significant costs savings whilst improving overall project safety.

CMS Launches new monitoring system

 

Vibrocoring is an established fundamental phase of marine seabed investigations but it’s importance is often underestimated and much vibrocoring is carried out somewhat blindly, ie lowering the unit to the seabed, vibrating for a set time, and recovering to the surface in the hope that an adequate sample has been obtained.

 

CMS-Geotech is a UK leader specialising in vibrocoring and CPT site investigation and over the last twelve months has developed a new monitoring system, VAMP, to maximise the reliability and robustness of the sampling procedure whilst improving core sample integrity and efficiencies.
