October 24th, 2017

SGS is one of the world's leading companies in inspection, testing and certification. Its Belgium subsidiary has recently taken delivery of a high-end 200 kN crawler-based CPT to extend its CPT capabilities.

SGS operates an extensive fleet of CPT crawlers and trucks manufactured by Gouda-Geo and this rig is the second crawler of this specific design delivered to them. The rig features:

The rig is capable to conduct both mechanical as well as electrical CPT(u) tests. The ergonomics and accessories are all designed with high productivity, safety and comfort in mind.

The 200 kN CPT crawler was immediately put into service on a soil investigation job in Oostende at the Belgium coast, where this picture was taken.

We wish operator Lothar many safe and pleasant working days with this new rig. We are convinced the rig is in capable hands!
