Oct 29 2021
Fugro’s advanced geotechnical testing laboratory capacity is set to increase by over 50 % across Europe and America by the end of 2021. This development across three key laboratories - Wallingford, Houston and Brussels – will significantly reduce the turnaround time of test Geo-data and ensure a rapid response to the growing demands of the energy and infrastructure sectors.
Fugro are set to increase their capacity at their geothermal labs in Belgium, the UK and USA by the end of this year. This will facilitate a considerable reduction in the turn-around time for their customers facing the ever-increasing demands posed by the energy and infrastructure sectors who require rapid and dependable analysed geo-data.
The laboratories have newly customised equipment installed that has been designed in collaboration with their suppliers, enabling Fugro to provide fast, project-specific and research-level testing to their customers. Fugro have added more than100 cyclic and static simple shear and triaxial testing instruments facilitating representative results with all types of soil, stiff clays, sand and soft rocks. Many of these instruments can measure soil small strain stiffness parameters, these are particularly important in the design of offshore wind farm foundations.
Fugro’s labs have similar scopes of accreditation, quality management systems and procedures, to ensure harmonised and reproducible results across the globe.
