Read the latest stories about EMerald Geomodelling and how we uncover ground conditions in large scale infrastructure projects.
By combining a multitude of data points into a comprehensive 3D model, we were able to identify potentially significant conductors at three separate locations. The discoveries will be important for Kuniko going forward.
The data collected shows not only where quick clay is located, but also what to do. The method has received international attention.
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.
Chris Pressdee is the newest addition to the EMerald Geomodelling team and will be assisting the company’s work in the UK. With his 25 year’s engineering experience, he will be a strong addition to the team.
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.
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.
Through innovative thinking, the team at EMerald Geomodelling has demonstrated that it’s possible to do large-scale mapping of quick clay occurrences by combining airborne geophysics, geotechnical investigations, and machine learning. A scientific study demonstrating this integrated approach has now been published in Near Surface Geophysics.
Early in 2021, Magnus Rømoen joined the board at EMerald Geomodelling, bringing more than 15 years of knowledge and expertise to the team.
By using EMerald Geomodelling's geoscanning surveys and machine learning algorithms on a road construction project near Trondheim, Norway, Nye Veier saved one year of geotechnical investigations and averted road construction costs equivalent to 250 million NOK.
The Indian government is currently working on strategic road tunnel projects to ensure safe travel between central India and the Kashmir region. To get information about the complex geology and overcome the challenges of conducting ground investigations at more than 5000 m altitude, EMerald Geomodelling is on site in Jammu, Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh, India – flying in the face of Covid.
With first-hand experience in all phases of the technology development pipeline, Le Breton is ready to help EMerald Geomodelling to develop what he calls "new superpowers for geoengineers" that will disrupt the construction and infrastructure industries.
When you apply for a summer internship, there is often a risk you´ll be set to do tasks no one else wants to do. What if you got the opportunity to make and try new machine learning algorithms? The bonus ofcourse is to be included in a small, but dynamic group that goes that extra mile.
