Subsoilutions own and operate 21-tonne capacity Top-Push CPT system. Used primarily for nearshore geotechnical site investigations performed from jack-up barges, our top-push CPT unit has successfully completed projects in the North Sea, English Channel, and throughout South America.
The top-push CPT unit comprises two hydraulic ramps driven by an electric–hydraulic power pack, providing a 1.4-metre stroke length. This compact unit can easily and efficiently be installed on various fixed barges and jack-up platforms, and offers a rapid and cost-effective CPT solution for inshore, nearshore or offshore geotechnical operations.
