Seabed CPT

Probedrill’s Seabed Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) Pushing Frame can be used for geotechnical testing associated with:

  • Pipelines
  • Ports & harbours
  • Dredging and Construction projects
  • Cable route surveys
  • Off-shore wind farms
  • Environmental Survey
  • Wave Energy

Designed to be deployed from a stable positioned vessel or platform, our subsea system is used to determine near-shore seabed soil conditions and provides rapid, live, CPT readings.

The chain drive action of the Seabed CPT allows for a continuous push of 20mm / sec, recording data until target depth or refusal.
