Surface seabed soil sampling - GEOROV™



A portable, cost-effective, and highly productive solution for seabed soil sampling.

The GeoROV acquires ISO standard CPTu data and high-quality undisturbed samples at up to 2500m water depth. The GeoROV drive unit mounts to all work class ROVs and after initial mobilisation takes less than one hour to fit or remove. It can be interfaced to any work class ROV and provides real-time data transmission. 

The system can be used in very close proximity to existing seabed assets, and even underneath structures. When used in conjunction with geoREACT™ suction skid, additional on-bottom reaction force is multiplied, enabling greater penetration and quality during GeoROV operations and a temporary yet highly stable platform for other seabed survey and intervention tasks. 

Services include: 

  • Piezo cone penetrometer testing 
  • In-situ full flow penetrometer testing with T-bar 
  • Shelby tube push sampling 
  • Clear liner push sampling
  • Piston sampling 
  • MOSTAP-35 thick wall push sampling
