SOCOTEC’s technical, scientific and technological support services accompany customers throughout the design, purchase and construction of their marine installations. Our team of specialised technicians focus on the geophysical, geotechnical and environmental aspects linked to coastal and offshore activities, helping you safely and efficiently meet your objectives.
SOCOTEC uses the latest systems to carry out a variety of surveys on shallow, deep and very deep waters, gathering detailed information about the seabed and sea substrate. We offer bathymetric, geophysical, hydrographic, morphological, magnetometric and archaeological surveys, depending on the project’s requirements.
SOCOTEC’s Range of Geomarine Services
Our geomarine team offers a wide range of services, including environmental research. Using systems developed in-house, research can focus on everything from environmental impact assessments and tidal level measurement through to chemical-physical monitoring and the management of intake and discharge systems.
Our positioning services use the latest technology and are overseen by highly qualified personnel. We can help with both in- and off-shore construction operations, supporting activities such as positioning boats, pontoon and tugs, core drilling, submarine platforms and installations, civil and industrial installations and the laying of cables and pipelines.
We can also perform underwater visual and instrumental inspections of platforms and pipelines using ROVs and AUVs. In the case of buried pipelines, a pipe tracker system is added to identify the target through impulsive inductions. Data processing is performed using our bespoke software, which is able to determine the position of any object with high precision.
