Geotechnology Inc., a leading provider of geotechnical and environmental engineering, geophysics, water resource management, materials testing and drilling services, has purchased a Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) Rig, becoming the only geotechnical services firm in the region to own such equipment.

Cone Penetration Testing is a process whereby soil characteristics can be identified by pushing a cone penetrometer into the soil. The CPT provides a constant, rapid, and reliable means of determining soil stratigraphy, relative density, strength and hydrogeologic information (static and dynamic pore pressure, hydraulic conductivity).

Manufactured by Vertek, the all-weather, 20 ton (18 t) tracked rig, combines the testing equipment and drilling platform, can be mobilized for many terrains or be positioned on a floating barge, without having to be anchored. The rig also is equipped for shear-wave subsurface testing, which normally requires separate equipment and crews.

“This significant investment for Geotechnology represents a win-win situation for our firm and for our valued customers,” said Ed Alizadeh, president and CEO of Geotechnology Inc. “Owning this critical piece of equipment instead of having to rent it means faster deployment and improved efficiency, which results in our customers saving time and money.”
