Our technology and method have been utilized in large scale projects since 2009. We work with customers in a broad section of sectors, both in Norway and internationally. See what they have to say about our work below.
"Working with EMerald Geomodelling saved us 250 million NOK in a single project and reducing drilling by 30%. The elimination of uncertainty about what's going on under the surface was priceless."
For all big road and tunnel projects, knowledge of the ground conditions can be what makes or breaks it. Therefore, a thorough drilling campaign is required to get the necessary information before the construction work starts… Or at least, that's been true in the past.
For the first time ever, the rock conditions of the challenging Himalayas were mapped with the use of helicopter geoscanning and exploratory drilling follow-up. This pioneering work, done in 2013, made it possible to analyse the ground conditions in practically inaccessible areas.
Within three days, EMearald Geomodelling managed to map the ground conditions in a 500 km area. This gave the contractor more security in planning the road alignment of the massive road project.
Assisting SN Power with geotechnical surveys to better understand the rock formations in underground structures, especially for hydropower tunnel projects.
In the aftermath of the devastating quick clay landslide in Gjerdrum in late 2020, The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) started conducting surveys to assess quick clay zones. EMerald Geomodelling was engaged to perform airborne geoscanning to effectively get an overall overview of the ground conditions.
Assisting First Quantum Minerals Ltd (FQML) in their mining project by using the unique interface detection algorithm to generate a detailed model showing the interface between saprolite and hard rock, providing inputs into saprolite elevation and resistivity.
The Flåm valley is a large and unstable area that is difficult to assess and that appears to be driven by a deep-seated sliding mechanism. The municipality and regional hydroelectric company E-CO Vannkraft were evaluating the potential of draining the unstable area to a nearby hydropower reservoir. EMerald Geomodelling was engaged to provide further geophysical inputs.
In 2021, EMerald Geomodelling was engaged by RUMO Logística, the largest railway company in South America, to accurately characterize the real geological conditions of the planned railway route. By using both geophysical data and existing data combined with EMerald Geomodellings proprietory machine learning software, EMerald could provide RUMO with suggestions of where to focus their follow-up investigations.
Nye Veier received assistance from Emerald Geomodelling before building and designing the new highway between Kvithammer and Åsen. Using airborne geoscanning, EMerald Geomodelling was able to collect data for large areas in a short amount of time, saving the project an estimated 250 million NOK.
