Innovative geotechnical profiling system analyzes the underwater sediment layers during intrusion. Recent business partnership agreement between dotOcean and MacArtney covering the North American continent consolidates MacArtney’s strong position in key markets and provides customer access to the extensive range of dotOcean sediment and soil measurement products.
The GraviProbe in question has been sold by MacArtney US to SES, supplier of marine survey and navigation equipment for hire, sale & lease purchase. Owing to the reinforced partnership relations between dotOcean and the MacArtney Group, MacArtney US succeeded in assisting and enabling SES to strengthen their market potential.
Being a free fall impact instrument analyzing the underwater sediment layers during intrusion, the GraviProbe is capable of accelerating and penetrating fluid and consolidated mud layers under its own weight. In addition, the GraviProbe instrument is able to very accurately distinguish the depth of the fluid mud and consolidated mud layers, even in gassy environments.
According to Mr. Alan Craig, SES Vice President, Operations & Sales, SES continually invests in the most up-to-date equipment, hardware and software, offering their clients access to the latest technology from the world’s leading manufacturers: The dotOcean GraviProbe is one of those products. Partnering with a global company like MacArtney on the dotOcean product line allows us to further expand our presence in markets such as renewable energy, dredging and civil engineering.
