Description

During December, 2002, Andrews Survey carried out 16 marine piezocone penetration tests
(PCPT’s) and 16 vibrocores as part of the European Marine Energy Test Centre, Orkney.
The fieldwork was performed for RJ McLeod from the vessel ‘Forth Fighter’. The water depth
at the test locations was approximately 50m. Penetration of up to 5m for the PCPT’s was
specified and achieved.
The investigation generally revealed the seabed stratigraphy to be sandy deposits to the north
of the site, with glacial till overlying suspected shallow bedrock encountered to the south.
