In December 2020, SOCOTEC’s Laboratory and Analytical division were contracted to provide chemical and physical testing services to support a design and build project for a new port facility in a British Overseas Territory.



Working on behalf of a major civil engineering contractor, SOCOTEC provided Marine Management Organisation (MMO) approved testing on marine sediment samples, as well as chemical testing services for environmental soils and borehole waters. Analysis of these samples would be used to identify sources of contamination within the boundary of the project site, providing the client with an in-depth understanding as to how to proceed with the environmental management of decomissioning the old infrastructure.
