Fugro’s geotechnical testing laboratory capacity is set to increase by over 50% across Europe and America by the end of 2021.
Three laboratories, Wallingford, Houston and Brussels, feature newly customised equipment that has been designed in collaboration with suppliers, allowing Fugro to offer project-specific and research-level testing on a commercial scale. The total expansion includes over 100 cyclic and static simple shear and triaxial testing devices to ensure representative results across all soil types, including stiff clays, sand and soft rocks. A third of these devices are capable of measuring soil small strain stiffness parameters, which are critical for offshore wind farm foundation design.
