Read the latest stories about EMerald Geomodelling and how we uncover ground conditions in large scale infrastructure projects.
In a commission for Nye Veier, EMerald Geomodelling and SkyTEM Surveys will be mapping the ground conditions in connection with the design of the new E18 highway southeast in Norway. Three stretches of road amounting to a total of around 52 kilometres are scheduled to be geoscanned by helicopter: Langangen to Rugtvedt, Dørdal to Tvedestrand and Arendal to Grimstad.
We are thrilled to have Ronny Liverød on the team as VP Business Development! – I am looking forward to spreading the word about EMerald Geomodelling’s ingenious and innovative technique to the world, says Ronny Liverød. As business development manager, he is the one who will have the customer contact and develop both the Norwegian and the international market.
The newly established company EMerald Geomodelling will, in the next few years, work to enable smarter resource utilization in public and private sector when planning infrastructure. The innovation company is based on several years of research at the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI). By combining geoscanning with machine learning, the innovative company wants to help solve major challenges in infrastructure projects in the coming years.
From a grass-covered field in Stjørdal, a helicopter lifts off. Below it hangs a hexagonal structure measuring 342 m2 that weighs 700 kg. After a few days of flying a total of 30 km2 of new alignments of the E6 in Trøndelag will be covered: 20 km2 between Ulsberg and Kvål, and 10 km2 between Kvithammar and Åsen.
EMerald Geomodelling’s Co-Founder and VP Technology Craig W. Christensen will be a panel member for a roundtable at the 3rd International Conference on Information Technology in Geo-Engineering. The topic at hand: how has AI and machine learning impacted our industry, and what’s the future ahead?
During the 17thEuropean Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering in Reykjavik, Iceland, we give insight into the inner workings of integrated soil investigations programs based on integrating geotechnical and geophysical data with machine learning.
Nye Veier has begun using a new, cost-effective method for surveying the subsurface where roads and tunnels are to be built
National Highways & Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd. (NHIDCL) aims to secure some of the most dangerous transportation routes between central parts of India and the Kashmir region. To solve these enormous challenges, they have engaged EMerald Geomodelling, through NGI.
In partnership with Kjeller Innovation and supported by the Research Council Norway FORNY2020 program, NGI is currently establishing a technology spin off that aims to reduce cost and time for ground investigations in complicated, large-scale infrastructure developments in Norway.
