In Our DNA
Our fit-for-purpose solutions center around the design and development of custom technologies, in addition to a range of mission-critical, ROV-deployed geotechnical survey tools, including CPT, samplers, and T-Bar test equipment. Our most recent additions include the ROVcone and the BOXcone
Royal IHC has developed the world’s most advanced heavy duty remotely operated subsea drilling and geotechnical site investigation rig known as SWORD. It is specified to be capable of the very highest quality geotechnical drilling, coring, sampling and in situ testing to a depth of 120 metres penetration below the seabed, in depths to 3,000 metres.
Besides our proprietary technologies, we also provide product R&D to clients seeking to develop their own systems and equipment. Our technical expertise includes all aspects of subsea soil sampling, testing, and drilling equipment, associated marine and launch/recovery systems, robotic seabed interacting systems (including seabed drills, tracked vehicles, and mining-related vehicles), and jetting systems.
We also operate sophisticated 3D modelling, analysis, and flow simulation software in support of these activities.
Building on 30 years experience of pressuremeter testing we provide a range of testing equipment to suit all ground conditions, for both offshore and onshore use.
Pressuremeter testing is an essential tool for assessing the small strain modulus of soils in both offshore and onshore geotechnical engineering.
To provide our Clients with ultimate flexibility, we are able to offer our pressuremeter services either with an operator, or where Client has staff with suitable training and experience, on an equipment hire only basis.
