Electrical Resistivity Imaging to Determine the Location of a Fault Plane, South Island

ScanTec have experience in geotechnical site assessment for;

  • Wind turbine platforms
  • Power station sites
  • Pipeline routes
  • Tunnels
  • Dams and hydro-electrical canals
  • Roads
  • Bridges
  • Buildings

Techniques we use include;

  • MASW (multispectral andalysis of surface waves)
  • ReMi  (refraction microtremor)
  • Acoustic Televiewer probe (ATV)  (borehole logging in boreholes)
  • Full-Wave sonic probe  (wireline logging in boreholes)
  • Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
