In addition to acoustic survey services, Bibby HydroMap also benefits from capability to provide shallow geotechnical surveys. Depending on project requirements, geotechnical sampling and testing is typically performed in compliance with NORSOK, BS (British Standards) or DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung) standards, with testing in a UKAS-accredited laboratory. All acquired geotechnical data is processed and interpreted in-house before generation of final survey reports. The company’s 27.5m DP1 24hr sister vessels Bibby Tethra and Bibby Athena provide a stable, cost-effective platform for shallow water geotechnical sampling.
