Geotechnical Investigation Over WaterPontoons for Surveys, Probe Testing, Rigs & Boreholes
Geotechnical Investigation Pontoons
Water-based surveys, sampling and other exploratory work needs a solid platform from which to work. Floating Pontoon Solutions provides safe, secure, customisable platforms that enable your teams to do their jobs without worrying about their own safety, or the integrity of the investigations.
Need Space for Drilling?
The modular construction of our floating pontoons means that you can tailor the platform for your requirements. So if you need a central clearing in the platform to provide room for boring, testing or sampling, our experts will construct it for you.
Take a look at the modular floating pontoons solutions that have helped our clients.
When undertaking drilling for Geotechnical works, it’s not just the weight of equipment housed on the pontoon which needs to be taken into consideration but also the additional force applied whilst the rig is undertaking drilling. In order to counter this and ensure that the pontoon remains as stable as possible, we can install steel form work and load spreading mats to ensure the point load being applied is spread across as much of the pontoon as required.
Mooring Your Floating Pontoon
Where your work requires the floating pontoon to remain securely in place, we will assess the condition of the water and use the appropriate mooring equipment to ensure survey work isn’t compromised or delayed by movement.
All our staff are CSCS trained and have RYA qualifications. Working on the water is like a second home to them, meaning you’re in the safest hands possible.
