Alpine Ocean Seismic Survey, the U.S. subsidiary of UK-based Gardline Group, has bolstered its marine data collection offerings with the addition of geotechnical services.
Working in conjunction with Gardline Geosciences, a leading global provider of geotechnical services, Alpine is adding a significant new tool to its already impressive suite of services designed to deliver one-stop data acquisition solutions for North American renewable energy, civil engineering, and oil and gas projects. Research teams will leverage Gardline Geosciences’ global experience, equipment, and data processing technologies to offer cone penetration testing (CPT), offshore heave compensated drilling, and seabed sampling for projects ranging from nearshore surveys to offshore efforts in depths up to 3000 meters.
“Gardline’s extensive experience, combined with Alpine’s localized data acquisition knowledge, relationships with state and federal agencies, and work on a wide range of high-profile marine projects, enables us to offer North American clients state-of-the-art geotechnical services,” says Andy Barwise, business development director, Gardline Geosciences Ltd.
“Because we leverage decades of experience in the offshore oil and gas sector, we can also bring cutting-edge geotechnical technologies, expertise, and safety practices to the renewables market, which providers moving to offshore renewables from land-based projects can’t match.”
“We’re excited to bring Gardline Geosciences’ suite of geotechnical services to the North American market. With these services in place, we’re able to provide the turnkey marine data collection services needed for fast-growing offshore efforts in our waters,” says Robert Mecarini, president, Alpine Ocean Seismic Survey.
The suite of geotechnical offerings joins Alpine’s existing portfolio of geophysical, hydrographic, oceanographic, environmental, and positioning services.
