Lankelma won the Equipment Innovation category at this year’s Ground Engineering Awards, recognising its work in developing better ways to gather high quality geotechnical data from Cone Penetration Testing for engineering design.
We have enhanced our popular video cone to enable faster detection of fuel and oil ground contamination. The new cone features UV-emitting LEDs that can detect cold light emission luminescence from fuels and oils, providing a more accurate picture of the ground in real-time. “Many industrial oils and fuels visibly emit fluorescence under ultra-violet conditions,” explained Lankelma […]
Lankelma’s road-rail CPT truck and its excavator-mounted CPT rig have been working through the night for the Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme. The Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP), being delivered by Network Rail, involves modernisation and upgrades of key junctions, plus electrification of the rail network, including the main line between Edinburgh and Glasgow and to […]
Lankelma’s combination magnetometer cone has once again proved its worth on an investigation in Avonmouth. Lankelma, working for WML Consulting, carried out four CPTs to 22m – three inside a building – to gather geotechnical information and to demonstrate the site was clear of buried ferrous objects. “The combination magnetometer cone incorporates a mag detecting […]
Lankelma is helping the University of Hertfordshire meet its ambitious building plans. Lankelma’s UK15 track-truck and its UK17 wheeled rig carried out 90 piezocone CPTs and 30 dissipation tests through sands and silts in two visits to the University earlier this year. The University’s 2020 estates vision will see upgrading of existing facilities, plus construction […]
Sandpiper, our Combifloat C5 jack-up platform has been overhauled, following an extensive trip to the Caribbean Sea. Lankelma Managing Director Eric Zon commented: “Sandpiper was very busy in 2016 and when it returned to the UK earlier this year, it was the ideal time to give it a lick of paint and to overhaul all […]
CPT Operator Martyn Waters joined Lankelma 14 years ago; since then he has carried out testing on projects around the world. “Everyday is an adventure with Lankelma – no two days are ever the same,“ Martyn said. “I spend most of my time in field, performing a range of tests, from magnetometer investigations looking for […]
Professor Richard Jardine from Imperial College, London, will be the keynote speaker at Lankelma’s open day on 14 July. Lankelma Managing Director Eric Zon said: “We are delighted Richard will be joining us to give an abridged version of his 2016 Rankine Lecture. Other presenters include Graham Church, Technical Lead Ground Investigations, HS2, and our […]
Lankelma 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, […]
