Fugro EMU Limited has extensive experience in working closely with public sector organisations concerned with the marine and coastal environment. A number of projects have been carried out on behalf of marine regulatory organisations and government departments, including specialised geophysical and ecological surveys, technical reports and provision of expert advice. This work covers a range of topics, including but not limited to:
Our GPR products aid in determining mining safety, establishing bedrock depth, mapping sand and gravel deposits, ascertain rock quality, in addition to mineral exploration. Mining professionals use ground penetrating radar to accurately locate underground structures before drilling, blasting or carrying face operations. Ground penetrating radar is instrumental in helping to identify overhead separations in order to prevent ceiling collapses. In deep mine applications, ground penetrating radar is invaluable for...
Mining is an industry whose product is buried beneath the surface. The mining industry has long embraced 3D technology, and MVS offers a bold new approach with the power and flexibility to address the needs at any stage of mining, from geophysics, to exploration and assessment, to mining operations.
As an archaeologist, you can use ImpulseRadar GPR for: Site investigation, assessment and virtual reconstruction. Artefact location and mapping, Grave location and mapping, Structure location and mapping,
GPRs allow you to find a location, measure a depth of underground pipes, and cables, and other infrastructure items. The unique quality of GPR - they can find both metallic and non-metallic items with an equal efficiency.
In construction and infrastructure field GPR application makes it possible to have the most detailed topography of undergrounding. GPRs help to discover ground water location, old underground passages and cavities remains and karst layers.
In archaeology using GPR you can process considerable areas of planned excavations. Therefore, the needed excavation area can be substantially reduced. Time and financial costs reduce as well. Examining historical buildings GPRs allow to find hidden rooms, spot areas of demolition in the object structure. What is remarkable, you can make a noncontact research with GPR (e.g. above ground surface).
Police can use GPRs in different forensic investigations (search for hidden burials, underground hiding places and passages etc.). Military uses of GPR include location and detection of buried explosive devices and land mines.
Fugro EMU Limited provides turn-key marine environmental services to major oil and gas providers in the UK and overseas by combining its multi-disciplinary capabilities in environmental consultancy, ecology, geophysical and metocean survey, geology and laboratories with its fleet of dedicated offshore vessel services. Fugro EMU vessels enable its consultant teams to deliver project specific needs from exploration through to development and decommissioning in addition to oil spill contingency planning. This...
Ground Penetrating Radar to Evaluate Rail Ballast, Sub-ballast and Sub-grade. Railroad maintenance and service providers have traditionally relied on visual inspection and excavation to assess ballast condition and measure sub-ballast and sub-grade. Ground penetrating radar is used to indicate ballast fouling and accurately measure the structural layers to a higher precision and in far less time than with traditional methods.
The roads and bridges construction and repair demand of careful investigation of road surfacing state, quality of used concrete and geological assessment of ground structure under roads to find any heterogeneity. GPRs can be applied here for: tunnels, road surface thickness measure, runways state assessment. The important advantage of GPRs using – quick road surface assessment.
Geophysical professionals require a reliable and accurate means to examine soil conditions and the natural structures found beneath the surface of the earth. Ground penetrating radar has long been the choice for geophysical investigations with a wide range of high precision, field-proven tools. Geophysical tools can be used to calculate ground conductivity, tree and roots assessment, for golf courses, for drainage tiles.
Subsurface investigations prior to reconnaissance and pre construction stages are often met with difficult site conditions particularly over rivers and water bodies. Due to site constraints, geo-technical methods are not suitable in such cases. Therefore
Civil engineers, consultants and contractors can use ImpulseRadar GPR for: Concrete / structure investigations and mapping: conduits, depth of cover, post-tension cables, rebar, slab thickness and voids. Bridge, road and runway investigations: asphalt thickness, base layer profiling and thickness, reinforcement evaluations, structure, subsidence and voids. Utility detection and mapping.
Law enforcement and military specialists can use ImpulseRadar GPR for: Explosives / weapons cache location. Forensics – clandestine burials (evidence, objects and remains). Search and rescue. Bunker and tunnel detection. Unexploded ordinance (UXO) investigations and mapping.
