Instrument Engineer Alastair Harman manages Lankelma’s calibration laboratory, involving servicing and testing all of CPT test equipment and instruments. Since joining Lankelma over 10 years ago, Alastair has significantly improved the capacity and quality of the equipment used on site.
Lankelma faced extreme weather and a busy shipping calendar during critical nearshore investigations for the design of the foundations for a new moveable tidal barrier in Lowestoft in March 2021, as part of the Lowestoft Flood Risk Management Project.
Lankelma’s ever growing nearshore business continues to grow with the addition of a ROSON 50kN Seabed CPT unit. Bought from A. P. Van Den Berg, it adds value to their nearshore CPT capabilities as the industry develops. Eric Zon had the following to say ‘Lankelma has been involved in the marine geotechnics for the landfall […]
Lankelma have continued to invest in cutting edge technology & in December 2020 they took delivery of a new rail-crawler, UK24, to expand their on-rail capabilities. Eric Zon said ‘we have three rail units with us building the first self propelled CPT rail truck in the world in 2006. Our new unit is also self […]
We recently took delivery of our new CPT rig, UK23, which is a world’s first – a hybrid plug-in ballasted CPT crawler. It was part-funded by the EU’s LEADER programme and the Wealden and Rother Rural (WARR) Partnership.
Lankelma Managing Director Eric Zon will be speaking at Ground Engineering Marine Geotechnics 2020 held at Inmarsat, London on Thursday 26 March 2020. The Marine Geotechnics conference will consider the geotechnical aspects of nearshore and offshore site investigations. Eric will discuss “Understanding the use of sonic drilling and wireline CPT in nearshore site investigations” View […]
Our new CompactRotoSonic XL-Duo rig, enables us to carry out both sonic drilling or Geobor-S drilling from Sandpiper, our C-5 jack-up platform, strengthening our nearshore marine services capability. The has a dual drill head, enabling it to switch between both techniques. Sonic drilling uses rotation and vibrations to liquefy a narrow zone of soil and cuttings around […]
The Seismic Moveout method is a more accurate alternative to conventional downhole seismic testing, enabling elastic soil parameters at shallow depths (between ground level and 4m) to be derived, which has previously been very challenging and, in some cases, impossible. Joe Hobbs, Lankelma Technical Manager Small strain shear modulus is essential to understand the static […]
Wireline cone penetration testing is a viable alternative to traditional top-push techniques for nearshore projects. Kim Hodgson, Lankelma Nearshore Projects Manager. While wireline downhole Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) systems have proved popular for deep water investigations, when it comes to nearshore projects, contractors tend to opt for land-based top-push CPT rigs deployed on jack-up platforms […]
A great way for you and your team to find out more about CPT and the benefits it can bring to your projects is by booking a Lankelma CPT seminar. The seminar, which can be held at your office over breakfast or lunch (provided by us) will take about an hour. It can be tailored […]
