Horizon Geosciences has recently mobilized its K3 offshore geotechnical site investigation spread on its first project offshore Poland.
The rig has been mobilized to DP2 vessel Kommandor Susan owned and operated by Hays Ships.
Horizon’s K3 geotechnical drilling system is the fourth offshore heave compensated rig to be brought into service by the company.
The rig has the ability to switch to a nested coring system whereby 100mm Geobor S triple tube coring is conducted through a riser casing to provide larger diameter and higher quality core samples in a wide range of soil and rock conditions.
The rig can be used for deep boreholes as well as to deploy Horizon’s 200kN seabed CPT unit for acquisition of deep push cone penetration data also in combination with seismic CPT as required.
