“Thank you very much for the good and interesting AC results obtained and reported at Anholt. The results show that the risk during installation is less than expected before start of the AC activities…Ørsted thinks the AC operations have been very successful and have added much value to the project”

 

“In order to mitigate the geological risk for the piling works and therefore to minimize the cost of removal of obstacles offshore we are of the firm opinion that a thorough investigation of the locations in inevitable… EnBW is making very promising experience with PanGeo’s Acoustic Corer system which has successfully been deployed at 6 locations at the Baltic 1 project as well as on 6 locations of the OWF Kriegers Flak. We therefore deem it a sound proposal to use PanGeo for investigation of all locations at the OWF Kriegers Flak where piles shall be placed with aim to identify best possible location for each foundation structure.”

 

“Excellent experience working with PanGeo. Smooth, easy communication with no hiccups. Prompt responses and action whenever required from both the Commerial team and the Operational team. Incredibly easy to deal with. The team is very confident about their equipment, and rightfully so!”

 

Acoustic Corer™

The Acoustic Corer (AC) creates a high-resolution 12m wide core penetrating the sub-seabed to depths greater than 40m. The AC provides a 3D image of stratigraphy layers and anomalies across the entire foundation footprint. It bridges the technology gap between cone penetrometer tests and narrow-focused boreholes, eliminating subjectivity from those localized data sets. The AC delivers a unique value to the clients like no other survey equipment on the market.

Acoustic Corer™ Services

Collecting over 20,000 data points per second, the AC mitigates the installation risk of offshore infrastructure by identifying subsea stratigraphy and buried geohazards. The AC images provide quantitative information (position and sizing) on features such as:

•  Buried anomalies
•  Infrastructure
•  Stratigraphy layers
•  Gassy soil layers

Acoustic Corer™ Applications

The rise of offshore windfarms in complex seabeds has led to increased levels of risk during foundation installation. The AC mitigates risk to pile driving by identifying geohazards pre-installation providing confidence in foundation design and placement. The AC provides risk mitigation solutions for:

•  Foundation locations
•  Jack-up punch through
•  Infrastructure decommissioning
•  Geotechnical ambiguity
