Robertson Geo geophysical logging provides valuable data for Dam and related projects.

For over 40 years Robertson Geo has pioneered the development of wireline borehole logging instrumentation, technologies and techniques for investigation and interpretation of hydrological projects, environmental studies, mineral evaluation, hydrocarbon exploration and geoscience research world wide.

These technologies and techniques are proven for the acquisition of accurate and reliable calibrated subsurface data that is essential for the planning, construction, monitoring and repair of Dams and related projects. Robertson Geo surface deployment and subsurface equipment can provide data from the initial ground conditions and the evolving conditions throughout the life of the Dam.

A logging service, full system sales and rentals can facilitate any project from the smallest embankment through massive arch and buttress Dams. Robertson Geo is available to support the development, monitoring and investigation of everything from deep investigative systems through specialist overwater and small portable systems.
