CPT's

on land and water

By carrying out one or more CPT's, the soil structure at the location of the project location can be determined in a relatively inexpensive manner and can be compared with what is stated on regional geological and geohydrological maps.

During CPT works inter alia the penetration resistance, local adhesive, water pressure, electrical conductivity, magnetic field and angle of inclination can be recorded. On the basis of the tests carried out and derivations made, a number of soil parameters can be determined which, in turn, are necessary ingredients for various geotechnical calculations to be carried out.

GSNED offers a variety of equipment that can respond to almost any situation, both on land and on or in the water.

Diversity of equipment

Base upon the CPT's that are carried out and derivations made, a number of soil parameters can be determined which, in turn, are necessary ingredients for various geotechnical calculations to be carried out. Performing CPT's is therefore a very important but relatively inexpensive tool for achieving a high-quality geohydrological or soil-mechanical study.

GSNED has a variety of equipment that can be used in almost any situation, both on land and on or in the water.

  • New Sluice Terneuzen

    In Terneuzen, a lot of work is being carried out on a New Sluice Terneuzen. With a length of 427 meters, a width of 55 meters and a depth of 16.44 meters, the New Sluice becomes one of the largest locks in the world. In terms of dimensions, the Terneuzen lock is comparable to the locks in the Panama Canal, but slightly smaller than the Kieldrecht lock near Antwerp (in use in 2016) and the new sea lock in IJmuiden, which will be completed in early 2022.

  • GSNED is GMP+ certified

    What is GMP + certification?
    Animal feeding companies can switch to Good Manufacturing / Managing Practice. This regulation, better known as the GMP regulation, makes it demonstrable for companies that feeds and ingredients for food meet the legal requirements and extra-legal requirements agreed with chain parties. This scheme is particularly intended for food companies that sell residual products in the animal feed sector.

  • Rapid Load Test equipment (Pseudo-Static Load Tester)

    The bearing capacity of foundation piles can be tested in various ways, namely dynamic, static and pseudo-static. For the latter, GSNED uses an impressive machine, a so-called 'PSLT machine' (pseudo-static load tester).
