Lankelma’s innovation recognised

Monday, May 8th, 2017

GEA17_Logo_CMYK_FINALISTLankelma has been named a finalist in the Equipment Innovation category at this year’s Ground Engineering Awards. 

Lankelma was shortlisted for its development of improved methods to gather high quality geotechnical data for engineering design using cone penetration testing.

Lankelma Managing Director Eric Zon, said: “Having won the Ground Investigation Specialist Investigation Award in 2015, we understand the importance of the Ground Engineering Awards and the high regard in which they are held.

“Being shortlisted is fantastic news: we have built a global reputation for our innovative approach to CPT. Recent innovations include a new way to improve pore pressure measurement reliability in soft soils; the lubricating module, which allows stiff clays to be tested at twice the depth than ever before, and a more accurate alternative to conventional downhole seismic testing, enabling elastic soil parameters to be derived at shallow depths.”

Ground Engineering Editor Claire Smith said: “The entries to the GE Awards never cease to amaze me. The number and quality of entries this year means that just getting onto the shortlist is a real achievement in itself.”

Finalists will attend judging by members of the 49-strong jury, made up of clients, contractors, consultants and academics. The awards will be presented at a special ceremony on 5 July 2017 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
