Read the latest stories about EMerald Geomodelling and how we uncover ground conditions in large scale infrastructure projects.
EMerald is expanding to Brazil to better serve customers and enhance field operations
This autumn throughout late August to November, EMerald will be participating in five prestigious conferences spanning across three continents!
Embarking on a new and exciting chapter as EMerald are relocating officies to Spaces Nydalen.
EMerald Geomodelling assisted NHIDCL in conducting geoscanning surveys to unveil ground conditions in the alpine regions of India.
The Silicon Review in interview with Andi A Pfaffhuber, EMerald Geomodelling CEO - “We have seen countless projects fail due to the lack of information about ground conditions. We apply the latest AI and machine learning to deliver accurate 3D images of the subsurface.”
Assisting SN Power with geotechnical surveys to better understand the rock formations in underground structures, especially for hydropower tunnel projects.
Volumetric analysis is a machine learning methodology that EMerald Geomodelling uses to create 3D geological models of different types of materials. It is based on inputs from both airborne geoscanning as well as more traditional geotechnical investigations. This method computes the probability of each material occurring at any given location and depth, which provides important insights for project planners.
EMerald Geomodelling delivers geological models to RUMO Logística, the largest railway company in South America, providing a more efficient drilling plan in addition to reducing the overall geological risk of the project.
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.
Investigations of subsurface site conditions are a crucial part of tunnel design, but the industry is still very reliant on traditional methods to get the information needed. With significant technological advances and a need to reduce carbon footprints from construction, it’s surely time for a change.
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.
A recent scientific study published in Engineering Geology demonstrates that the method used by EMerald Geomodelling can reduce the amount of boreholes needed for ground investigations by 2 - 3,5 times, leading to potentially huge cost and time savings in infrastructure projects.
