Technical Consultancy SWORD bij TI Geoscienses, UK (July – August 2017)
TI Geosciences develops together with Royal IHC the SWORD, a very innovative deepsea tool which will be able to catch geotechnical first class soil samples up to a depth of 3000m below sealevel. As part of a technical audit an outline report was made of both the marinized sonic drillhead as well as the different drilling and sampling tools in combination with the in-situ testing systems.
