FEATURES & ADVANTAGES

  • Operates independently of the deployment vessel, eliminating the need for conductor casing to support the CPT rods
  • Wheeldrive thrust mechanism can perform the sounding in one continuous stroke, providing excellent productivity
  • Allows for operations in deep water, high tidal conditions
  • Deploys 10 cm2 cone sizes
  • Approximate production rates from 50 to 200m per shift
  • Can deploy over side using cantilevered hoist/crane, or through moonpool
  • Provides real-time data results during CPT deployment
  • Modular, can ship anywhere via ground transport or ocean freight
