Geo-technical Tunnel Evaluation in Norway

Geo-technical Tunnel Evaluation in Norway

In one of the largest transport projects in Europe, the safe construction of a strategic rail tunnel in Norway requires in depth knowledge of the rock mechanics along the proposed path of the Tunnel that traverses through interesting mountains and hills. Geovista have supplied a comprehensive state of the art logging system equipped to provide borehole evaluation data for geo-technical analysis along the proposed line. The data is  collected as geo-technical boreholes are drilled along the tunnel path to evaluate the rock in preparation for the tunnel construction.        A range of equipment is being used including the standard Dual Focused Resistivity, Side Wall Density, Natural Gamma, Magnetic Susceptibility, Array Sonic and water quality probes to name a few as well as both the Optical and Acoustic Televiewers. The interesting topology in Norway makes for quite a beautiful and interesting set of data! Geo-Technical data is of paramount importance for such projects as knowing the stability, condition, structural systems, rock characteristics and groundwater conditions help anticipate the behavior of the rock surrounding the tunnel and the type of support required to maintain the tunnel in a stable condition. It also provides the basis for establishing the optimum tunneling method and of course reduces the risk of lengthy and costly delays that may arise due to unforeseen tunneling conditions.    ...

Field Training for Disi Water Conveyance Project in Jordan

Field Training for Disi Water Conveyance Project in Jordan

GeoVista have just completed training for a complete Dual View Colour Camera system for the Disi Water Conveyance Project. This Jordanian water supply project is designed to pump 100 million cubic metres of water per year from the Disi aquifer in South Jordan to the capital, Amman and other cities to meet increasing demand. This vast project requires the constant attention and management of the water wells to ensure consistent and efficient extraction of water for use by the population. GeoVista are proud to be involved in the supply of advanced camera technology to this project to ensure the wells are regularly inspected and evaluated to ensure maintenance and works can be planned to keep the water flowing. The camera provided clear, real time video of the borehole and allowed the operator to inspect the screens, open hole fractures and integrity of the cased/open hole zones. Choosing a reliable and robust camera solution for such a high priority project is essential to ensure no downtime occurs, and that a dedicated support team at GeoVista are always available. The operations team where very hospitable and professional and it was great fun to be riding around the beautiful desert! The training was a great success and we look forward to seeing how the work progresses to ensure Jordan’s population benefit from this essential water supply.          ...

Rock Mechanics Evaluation in India

Rock Mechanics Evaluation in India

GeoVista have just come back from India offering bespoke training to a client involved in the Gudem Lift irrigation project. This major project is focused on irrigating a vast area of land by raising water through various reservoirs up from a low flowing river. In light of this, structural rock engineers are involved is assessing formation fractures, rock strength and directional stresses to aid in the design and construction of this vast project. GeoVista brings new equipment and technology to improve the planning and evaluation of the water transportation and storage methods. Additionally, a pre and post hydraulic fracking log is now always taken to confirm the hydraulic fractures made while rock testing and planning the next...
