Eijkelkamp GeoPoint SoilSolutions opens up a world of CPT opportunities

Eijkelkamp SonicSampDrill and GeoPoint Systems have joined forces. Under the name of Eijkelkamp GeoPoint SoilSolutions together they will focus on developing and manufacturing SonicCPT tooling, smart sensoring, accessories and SonicCPT related rigs, such as the recently developed CompactCPTCrawler and Drill‘n CPT unit.

Eijkelkamp GeoPoint SoilSolutions was created when Eijkelkamp SonicSampDrill and GeoPoint Systems together developed a unique concept designed to integrate Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) into sonic drilling systems. The founders of Eijkelkamp GeoPoint SoilSolutions; Huug Eijkelkamp, Ruud Mosterd and Ferry Hoogveld enthusiastically explain why this combination of various innovative technologies is groundbreaking. ‘The CPT market is extremely conservative. The ‘Dutch Cone’, or the CPT cone, is a Dutch invention that is increasingly being used throughout the world, even with the current geology-related limitations. Eijkelkamp GeoPoint SoilSolutions thinks outside the box and in terms of possibilities. This way, the technology is becoming better and faster, and furthermore it can be used in any type of soil.’

‘It should be noted that this is not just a merger of companies to create a new entity; it also brings two different worlds together. Combining forces has resulted in a one-stop shop for developing, selling, training and maintaining CPT and related geotechnical and environmental products. Eijkelkamp GeoPoint SoilSolutions has the largest product range of geotechncial and environmental cones in the industry and is represented throughout the world for even faster delivery and local support.’

‘It is good to see that our new concept responds to a major need. This enables our customers to do their work even more efficiently. The revolutionary Drill’n CPT unit, for example, makes it possible for drilling companies to easily convert their drilling rig into a CPT rig. This translates into multi-purpose applications and reduced overhead costs. In other words, good news for geo-engineering companies specializing in foundation inspections, the mining industry, and for CPT and drilling companies. You can now do far more with smaller, lighter machines. Our smart CPT concepts are going to conquer the market.’
