“Since first introducing digital core scanning using the DMT Corescan to the UK geotechnical market we have found that many Clients, including those for major infrastructure projects such as Crossrail, Thames Tideway Tunnel and the High Speed Two (HS2) rail link, have specified the technique for use during ground investigations in recognition of the technical and commercial benefits that it brings.”
Digby Harman, Innovation Manager, Soil Engineering Geoservices Ltd (Part of the Soletanche Bachy Group), UK
“The perceived advantage to Crossrail is primarily the ability to review the strata in very high detail and in a relatively fresh and undisturbed condition at any time during the subsequent design and construction phases regardless of the time that has passed. Core that is stored long term, even that stored in optimum conditions, will show some sign of deterioration and in the worst cases may be completely useless to designers and contractors”
Mike Black, Geotechnical Manager, Cross London Rail Links Ltd (Crossrail)
"DMT CoreScan 3 Color, a portable core imaging device, acquired by LLP "AktubNIGRI" in August 2014, has proven to be excellent throughout the operation period and meets all specifications. The system allows to get a full image of the entire core circumference in 360° mode. High quality of images made in plane mode allows to see all structural and textural features of the sample. There are no complaints regarding results quality or the equipment."
