Seabed Sampler XL for water depths up to 4,000 m
In co-operation with NGI, we have developed a piston soil sampler that takes high-quality samples with a diameter of 110 mm and a length up to 20 m from the seabed, at water depths up to 4,000 m. The recovery ratio is higher than 95%. This means that very little disturbances occur to the sample.
The SBS XL can be pushed into the soil by any ROSON seabed CPT unit. Sample tubes are pre-assembled in the ROSON. Then the total assembly is lowered to the seabed and the SBS XL is pushed into the soil by means of the ROSON drive wheels.
