Marine sediment sampling with Sonic

In early 2013 SWD were engaged by URS to provide a Sonic drill rig to recover very soft marine sediments in Port Philip Bay in Victoria.

SWD were chosen for this project due to our experience working over water,  vast array of sampling techniques, high regard for safety and the sensitive marine environment and a great relationship with stakeholders on this project.

Sonic proved to be the perfect tool for sampling the varied geology underlying Port Philip Bay, we achieved 100% recovery including rock, wood  and steel fill.
