Our dedicated geotechnical vessels are specifically designed and equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to drill for answers and boost overall productivity. They can also be fitted with other survey equipment to accommodate your unique needs. Our vessels are fitted with 4-point mooring systems holding capability and maintain on-board soil testing laboratories, they can perform drilling including CPT, sampling and pilot holes in water depths up to 650m.

Dedicated Geotechnical Vessels Ready For Offshore Investigations

Our geotechnical vessels

MV Geos

MV Geos is a dedicated purpose built geotechnical vessel equipped with a 4-point mooring system and has been operating in Asia. She is a multi-discipline geotechnical vessel offering a range of drilling, in-situ testing and sampling services operated through a central moon-pool or via the vessel’s 10-tonnes capacity stern A-frame.

The drill string is advanced using a motion-compensated top-drive power swivel, capable of handling up to a 750m of standard 5″ OD API drill pipe. MV Geos also features an AP VDB downhole CPT Unit equipped with 450m cable.

The AG-50 Rig is capable of performing soil boring for hydraulic push sampling, downhole cone penetration (CPT) and in-situ vane shear testing, equipped with offshore soil laboratory and office facilities for field engineering, foundation design and jack-up leg penetration analysis.

Key features:

  • Geotechnical investigations for marine related industries
  • Site investigation for pre-drilling requirements
  • Shallow water geotechnical investigations for terminal plant and pipeline shore approach construction
  • Shallow gas investigations including very deep pilot holes up to 650m depth below seabed.
  • Fitted with debris survey equipment for integrated surveys when required

MV Trinity Explorer

MV Trinity Explorer is a dedicated geotechnical vessel operating within our South East Asian Region. She is a purpose-built geotechnical vessel equipped with a self-deployed 4-point mooring system. She is a proven multi-discipline geotechnical vessel offering a range of drilling, in-situ testing and sampling services operated through a central moon-pool, enabling vertical and stable drilling during testing operations.

MV Trinity Explorer is equipped with the sampling and in-situ testing equipment Wison AP van den Berg PCPT set, and the downhole vane shear testing equipment, making it possible to carry out geotechnical services with full capabilities.

The geotechnical rig is supported by a Dando 1000 which is capable of performing soil boring for hydraulic push sampling, downhole cone penetration (CPT) and in-situ vane shear testing, as well as offshore soil laboratory and office facilities for field engineering for foundation design and jack-up leg penetration analysis.

The vessel is equipped with its own offshore laboratory facilities to test soil samples acquired on-site. This provides our clients with timely and sufficient data to support a quick decision-making process.

Besides her operational capability, MV Trinity Explorer has accommodation for 50 personnel on-board, including office facilities for data processing. She is suited for various offshore operations.

Key Features:

  • Soil Samples Acquisition for exploration and development wells
  • Shallow water geotechnical investigation for terminal plant and pipeline shore approach construction
  • Pilot holes operations for Shallow Gas Operations up to 500m depth below seabed.
  • Debris Clearance Survey
  • Coring Services & CPT Operations
