UTEC Geomarine, the geoscience service line of UTEC, keeps abreast of new and emerging technologies to better develop new and existing services to support our reputation as the go-to company for technological insight. Particular areas of expertise include robotic tooling, subsea drilling, data acquisition, and real-time systems.
UTEC’s expertise lies in our deep knowledge of technology and our creativity in providing integrated solutions. Our innovative technologies include:
UTEC has created a unique ROV-deployed linear drive unit, the geoROV™ System. With up to 15kN thrust force the system is generally used for in situ testing (CPT and T-Bar), and high quality push / piston sampling.
geoREACT Suction Skid
This state-of-the-art system is a tool skid for a work class ROV that temporarily secures the ROV to suitable seabeds (sands and clays). Used in combination with geoROV™ the suction skid enables the ROV to provide up to 1.5 Tonne of reaction force, or it can be used to provide a super stable platform for deployment of sensitive survey instrumentation.
UTEC has become the go-to expert for geotechnical sampling via subsea robotic drilling services. This technology can be used for seabed geotechnical drilling, sampling, and in situ testing for a range of applications such as foundation design analysis for piles and structures, jack-up installation analysis, geohazard assessment, and more.
geoPEN Jack-up Analysis Software
UTEC’s geoPEN software provides jack-up spudcan penetration assessments in accordance with BS EN ISO 19905-1:2012 ‘Jack-ups’.
